Participants will explore the key concepts and principles of oppression and anti- oppression including diversity, equity, inclusion, human rights, racism, and privilege. This session will serve to lay a foundation of understanding in order to inform the ongoing work of organizational anti-oppression and systemic change. Participants will enhance their knowledge and understanding of the terminology, concepts, and importance of inclusive practices that respect and value all identities as well as explore and understand how discrimination, racism, and exclusion impacts hiring practices. Most importantly this workshop offers new tools and skills for implementing anti-bias hiring practices that support diversity and inclusion.
Training sessions are interactive and include opportunities for small and large group discussion. We ask participants to keep their video cameras on for the duration of the workshop.
