OCUFA to host anti-Black racism virtual workshop

OCUFA’s Status of Women and Equity Committee is hosting a virtual workshop entitled “Combatting anti-Black racism in the academy: A primer for faculty”. The workshop will run from 10 am - 12:30 pm on September 24 and is open to all members of OCUFA associations, and thus to all UWOFA members. If you are interested in attending, register for the workshop here as soon as possible.

The workshop will be facilitated by Paige Galette, who fights tirelessly for social justice through Black liberation, the Queer movement, the Women’s movement and organized labour. You can read Paige’s most recent essay in Until We Are Free: Reflections on Black Lives Matter in Canada. The workshop will aim to give participants tools to combat anti-Black racism in their roles as faculty, in their associations, on campus, and beyond. Participants will be given time to reflect and ask questions throughout the session. In order to help Paige tailor the session to meet the needs of participants, please register early and fill out the short questionnaire on the registration page.
