Anti-Racism Event Series

Anti-Racism Event Series

The new Anti-Racism Event Series is designed to help you and your teams understand and have discussions around issues of racism and systemic barriers that exist for marginalized and racialized groups of Canadians. Most of the events in this series are open to all public servants at all levels, with a few events targeted specifically to managers and executives.

This series will feature the latest information on topics such as anti-Black racism, unconscious bias, disaggregated data, mental health and the challenges faced by visible minorities in the public service. Participants can attend events separately or as a comprehensive learning suite depending on their availability.

All these events are offered virtually via webcast. Other learning products, such as presentations for management tables, orientation kits and job aids, will also be made available to support this learning series.
