Note: Learn more about our four-part Anti-Racism Speaker Series.
As a College community we have a responsibility to commit to standing up, speaking out, and pushing back against racism in all its forms.
We know diversity is one of our greatest strengths and the College is home to thousands of employees and students from all different backgrounds. Every one of us brings a unique perspective, experience, and connection to our workplace and classrooms.
We are proud of our diversity and while we continue to take important action in our shared fight against racism, we know we have more work ahead of us.
Even within the College, we’re not immune to the systemic racism and unconscious bias that continues to be prevalent throughout our communities and across the country – it still exists in our classrooms, hallways, and meeting rooms – and it’s why we must continue to do more. To say we as a College value diversity and inclusion is not enough – we must be anti-racist in our leadership, policies, and actions.
This panel discussion unpacked the ways in which racism and discrimination present themselves in our society.
Panelists discussed how each of us can be a stronger ally and anti-racist on and off campus. We delved into ways to safely talk about race and discrimination and explored how post-secondary institutions can transform themselves into more inclusive spaces for staff and students.
The College is excited to announce Anti-Racism training for staff and students will roll out this year. Learn more ›
