Beyond Diversity & Inclusion Training: Anti-Racism in the VAW Sector
Wednesday June 2, 2-3pm EDT
In May 2020, the police killing of George Floyd and other Black and Indigenous people in Canada and the US brought renewed attention to the deadly nature of systemic racism. It sparked a global movement that had all of us questioning the biases in our institutions, workplaces, and in our communities. To be more inclusive, many organizations across the sector ran diversity and inclusion (D&I) training for all their staff. But has this really made a difference for people of colour working in shelters and transition houses across the country? This webinar explores the work that needs to be done outside of a D&I curriculum and how to adopt a long-term humanistic approach to anti-racism. We are excited to have Hawa Dumbuya-Sesay, Executive Director of YWCA NWT and Carla Neto, Community Programs Manager of Women’s Habitat of Etobicoke join WSC as panellists in this engaging conversation. Simultaneous translation into English will be provided during this webinar. Click here to register.
