Safer Spaces: Issues in Race and Culture


McLennan Library Building 3459 rue McTavish, Montreal, QC, H3A 0C9, CA

This workshop provides participants already familiar with the basic terminology and concepts of cultural and racial diversity with a more in-depth engagement with these and other ideas. Through the PCS model of analysis, which examines personal, cultural, and structural levels of impact, participants will have the opportunity to examine how race and culture affect daily life in the McGill community. These three levels of impact are applied to the challenges of fostering diversity-receptive cultural attitudes, reducing structural barriers in University life, and building and maintaining safe and respectful spaces for interpersonal engagement. By working through examination of the power of words, stereotypes, and assumptions, the workshop also provides an empowered, individual-centred set of tools for addressing these challenges.
