This workshop is based on the Safe Spaces workshop first designed and implemented by the McGill Equity Subcommittee on Queer People. Participants in this workshop may choose to participate in our Safer Spaces Allies program.
This workshop is designed and delivered by the First Peoples’ House.
This workshop examines, from multiple perspectives, issues related to the inclusion of Indigenous peoples on our campuses. The workshop provides historical and contemporary information about laws and policies, demographics, and cultural and economic realities. 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. Through case studies, participants will have the chance to practice identifying and responding to the types of discrimination most commonly encountered in campus life.
This workshop is designed and delivered by the Office for Students with Disabilities (OSD).
