Through systematically uncovering implicit and explicit forms of racism and its colonial and intersectional impacts on marginalized peoples and their communities, participants will gain a deep understanding of the hegemony of racism, as well as how it is embedded and experienced in everyday interactions and relationships.
Learners from across disciplines, professions, organizations and communities will be challenged to think critically about racism, while moving towards awareness, action and dismantling institutional and systemic racism to help create lasting change.
