In this workshop, participants will receive an introduction to the concept of anti-oppression. Connections will be drawn between university commitments and the goals of anti-oppression. The workshop will leverage Zoom’s interactivity to engage participants in understanding equity centered terminology. Learners will explore how expressions of oppression manifest in policies, society, as well as on campus. They will also reflect on positionality and brainstorm how they may mobilize their privilege to make the campus a better place.
At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:
• Define anti-oppression and related terminology
• Reflect on their positionality and privilege
• Explore how oppression manifests in society
Important: Students must register for this event with their McGill email addresses.
