Recently announced in communications from the Department of Human Resources, support is being provided to full-time and part-time active employees who register for the course The Fundamentals of Race and Anti-Black Racism, offered by Continuing Education in collaboration with the Office of the Vice-President, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion.
One hundred full-time and part-time active employees are eligible to receive $100 off the course fee of $279 + HST. At this time, there are three sections open for registration, with more to be added later:
- ABRI 7102 - 002 - Thursdays, April 14 to May 19, 3:30 to 6:30 p.m.

The 18-hour course will focus on issues related to race and its origins, anti-Black racism, and the construct of whiteness. Through case studies and the sharing of experiences, participants explore their own relationships to power, privilege, and oppression to enhance their awareness within their personal and professional interactions.
