Where do I start? Building confidence in anti-racist education
This workshop is part of the Indigenous Cultural Safety and Anti-Racism Learning Series by the BRAID Network for Health Educators.
About this event
In the second workshop of the series, Dr. Laurie Harding will introduce fundamental processes for integrating anti-racist education into your teaching practice. Topics will include recognizing power and privilege, understanding one’s role is in anti-racism work, locating opportunities for integrating anti-racism in teaching and curriculum, and practicing active and ongoing self-reflection. Identity will be a primary theme of this workshop due to its centrality in anti-racism education.
