Participants will have the opportunity to apply new ideas and awareness, and build skills, by working through practical scenarios drawn from everyday work and life at McGill.
Participants will have the opportunity to examine how race and culture affect daily life in the McGill community. This workshop addresses the challenges of fostering diversity-receptive cultural attitudes, reducing structural barriers in University life, and building and maintaining respectful spaces for interpersonal engagement.
