There are local, national and global calls to action for businesses and organizations to take intentional action against anti-Black racism in work, service, social, and cultural environments. As we move into Spring 2022 and in-person interactions increase, organizations must be prepared to engage proactive measures to address intersectional forms of anti-Black racism, including consumer racial profiling in retail settings and race-based health and safety incidents on worksites.
As part of Tomee Sojourner Consulting Inc. and Sojourner Innovation and Learning Lab's work in this area, this learning session has been designed an immersive experience for learners to engage in solution-focused strategies to address intersectional forms of anti-Black racism in work and service environments.
This session provides learners with an opportunity to work through case scenarios to identify possible interventions, develop preventative measures, and deepen their understanding.
Note: The session focuses on Canadian and international research on anti-discrimination law, anti-racism, anti-oppression, and interdisciplinary theories. It blends theory with practical solutions.
1) Identify interventions to address intersectional forms of anti-Black racism
2) Explore how anti-Black racism takes place in subtle and overt ways in work and service environments (e.g. consumer racial profiling in hotel settings, bias in accessing services)
3) Provide some tools to develop solutions
