This session rests upon the uncomfortable truth that racism is normal, it’s pervasive. It’s in society and it is in our institutional settings, it’s in the everyday! This platform will provide opportunities to engage in some critical discussions about racism and whiteness. As socially just leaders, it is important to develop a shared language around basic racial literacy so that you, as a leader, can name it, understand it and seek to change practice. It will be an opportunity to ask questions and share good practice in developing effective allyship leading to tangible actions.Book now
