What does racism look and feel like in London, Ontario? The Diversity, Inclusion, and Anti-Oppression Advisory Committee, in partnership with the Mayor’s Office, CRHESI, and the Canadian Labour Congress, hosted London’s Community Forum on Racism on September 17, 2016. The half-day event was attended by about 170 Londoners, and explored the effects of racism in our city. A panel discussion and facilitated conversations undertook to understand how we identify racism, interrupt it, and create actions for a more inclusive city.
To help support and broaden this conversation in our city, CRHESI produced this video re-cap of the morning. Summary documentation and follow-up discussion guides are provided as well.
Please note that the Diversity, Inclusion, and Anti-Oppression Advisory Committee is hosting a Twitter chat (#RacismForum) on Wednesday, December 14, at 2pm.
The Canadian Alliance to End Homelessness annual conference is occurring in London right now (Wednesday through Friday). As part of the conference we are facilitating a networking reception for faculty, students, and post-docs on Wednesday evening.
With CRHESI as a sponsor for this event, we would like to extend an invitation to any of our members who are interested in the area of homelessness to attend, even if you are not attending the conference.
The reception is tonight, Wednesday, November 2, at 6:30pm-8:30pm, at the beautifully renovated historic London Round House. Free finger foods provided by Blackfriars Cafe. There will also be a cash bar. This is an opportunity to network with other academics and partners, including students, doing work across Canada in this sector.
We look forward to having you join us, and would appreciate an RSVP to email@example.com as soon as possible.
