Diversity and Anti-racism Education



Diversity and Anti-racism Education

The program offers a holistic interactive approach toward understanding diversity and inclusion, by providing learning activities that will enhance cultural sensitivity and knowledge about different cultures, build the capacity to support and implement anti-racism practices within workplaces and service delivery, foster greater inclusion and participation for newcomers, staff, volunteers, and community members.     

The learning content is customized according to the clients’ needs and professional fields (i.e. health service-providers, educational institutions, business, immigrant-serving agencies, etc.) The sessions are interactive and collaborative, virtual or in-person, with guest speakers, discussion circles and consultation, addressing intersectional identities, cultural values, and Indigenous perspective for building relationship.   

The program is a tool and a resource that helps to embrace and celebrate the rich dimensions of Canadian diversity, with just, equity, respect, and humility for individual’s uniqueness.
