Anti-Racism Awareness Pathway

5:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. January 7, 2021

The Anti-racism pathway Awareness workshop is part of a series of anti-racism education strategies (ARAES) developed by the UVic Equity and Human Rights office (EQHR), in collaboration with various university partners. The ARAES strategy aims to combat racism and create educational events and programs that directly address the societal and systemic attitudes and behaviours that perpetuate racial discrimination and other intersecting social inequities such as classism, sexism, ableism, homophobia, religious bigotry, among others. Such an intersectional anti-racism approach also aims to understand how social differences of ‘race’, class, gender, sexuality, sexual orientation, and ability are mediated in peoples’ historical and everyday lives (Dei, 1995). 

This interactive and practical approach to anti-racism education at UVic is based on a three-part program: Awareness, Intervener, Change maker. Our ultimate goal is to confront the institutional racism within the very culture and structure of the educational system and the society (Tator & Henry 1991).
