Further to Interim Dean Zwick’s July 23rd email announcing current initiatives to combat anti-Black and anti-Indigenous racism and foster diversity and inclusion at Schulich, I am pleased to confirm that, after having consulted with Student Services and the SCTE, York’s Centre for Human Rights, Equity and Inclusion will be delivering a series of anti-racism workshops for Schulich faculty and staff in the weeks ahead.
These workshops will provide unique opportunities to reflect upon our biases and intersectional identities, understand critical principles relating to addressing anti-Black and other forms of direct and systemic racism, and develop skills to address long-standing and emerging impacts on Black, Indigenous and racialized Peoples in the York community and beyond.
These workshops will be offered to both faculty and staff and will involve a combination of teaching modalities including whiteboarding, case studies, group discussions and breakout rooms.
All Schulich faculty and staff are strongly encouraged to participate in as many of these workshops as possible. The workshop series will be comprised of the following:
PLEASE NOTE that participation in at least one August workshop above is strongly recommended before participating in either or both of the September workshops below.
