Our Shared Spaces - MImm GSA - Introduction to Anti-Racism
*THIS WORKSHOP IS FOR THE MICROIMMUNOLOGY GRADUATE STUDENT ASSOCIATION ONLY - PLEASE DO NOT REGISTER IF YOU ARE NOT AFFILIATED, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO JOIN THE ZOOM OR RECEIVE ANY CO-CURRICULAR CREDITS*

This workshop will expose participants to terminology connected to race and anti-racism. Learners will be asked to reflect upon how racism affects the daily lives of everyone within its reach. Examining McGill’s policies, learners will understand some of the ways in which the institution calls its community to build inclusive spaces. The workshop advances the concept of “effective” allyship and gives space for participants to advocate for anti-racism and care on campus.


Learning Objectives: At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:


- Define racism, anti-racism and related terminology
- Reflect on racism and campus life
- Explore actions they can take to undermine racism


IMPORTANT: Students must register with their official McGill email address in order for the registration to be valid.

McGill University is on land which has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst Indigenous peoples, including the Haudenosaunee and Anishinabeg nations. We acknowledge and thank the diverse Indigenous people whose footsteps have marked this territory on which peoples of the world now gather.
