The Anti-Racism Speaker Series invited Indigenous, Black and Persons of Colour (IBPOC) to speak on anti-racism with context around how colonial institutions have impacted the lived experiences of IBPOC communities, ranging from broader oppressive systems (including academia and professional industries) to interpersonal relationships (such as microaggressions). Our hope is that these conversations inspire listeners to critically self-reflect and to commit to anti-racism within their own daily lives as well.
We held listening sessions in February 2021 to hear from BIPOC faculty, staff and students about their experiences in the Faculty. This allowed us to acknowledge these folks’ experiences, and take responsibility for moving forward as a Faculty when it comes to anti-racism and decolonizing our practices. After compiling what we’ve heard and reporting back to our community, we made a commitment to action on the different issues raised. This Speaker Series is part of the initiative.
