Designed specifically for the McGill context, this workshop will expose the participant to a number of concepts related to equity and discrimination. During this session, participants will examine ways that unconscious or unintended bias can work its way into everyday interactions; they will analyze culture and identity to understand how bias forms, and how it impacts relationships; and they will work through practical scenarios to develop language, responses, and strategies for addressing inequality and subtle bias in the office and classroom settings.
Understanding Discrimination: frameworks and first steps for implementing equity in professional practice
Designed specifically for the McGill context, this workshop will expose the participant to a number of concepts related to equity and discrimination. During this session, participants will cover terminology, cultural competencies, and dimensions of diversity in both conceptual and concrete terms. This first workshop in the Safer Spaces series provides an introduction to the complicated questions that arise when working, studying and living in cross-cultural settings.
As part of Community Engagement Day, we would like to invite you to attend our Appreciation Event on Wednesday, November 21st, 2012 from 4:30-6:30 at the Royal Victoria College West Lounge (3423 University Street).
The event will include a guided discussion period (over coffee and tea) between participants, group leaders, and community organizers to help share the diversity of experiences and knowledge gained on Community Engagement Day.
Community Engagement Day is a new project from the SEDE Office, SSMU, the SPF and many other partners that aims to celebrate and promote existing initiatives that connect McGill with the Montreal community, while building new relationships.
