WHAT TO EXPECT

Amplify Your Voice Through Powerful Conversation

"The beauty of anti-racism is that you don't have to pretend to be free of racism to be an anti-racist.
Anti-racism is the commitment to fight racism wherever you find it, including in yourself.
And it's the only way forward."

~Ijeoma Oluo

If you sign up for a BIPOC affinity group (for BIPOC educational professionals), you can expect:

  • To join a zoom meeting with video enabled.

  • To read one article, book chapter, or review an audio/visual recording per session that will inform and guide the discussion. 

  • To participate in small group discussions during which you would be willing to both share and listen.

  • To reflect on and share your experiences with racism using prompts like “​Share a story when you engaged in a difficult conversation about your racial identity” OR “Share a story about a moment when you faced internalized racism within yourself” OR “Share a strategy of self-care and community-care when navigating racial terrain.”

Group discussion is facilitated in a professional manner by BIPOC educators who understand social justice and EDIJ (equity, diversity, inclusion, justice) work in a Canadian educational context.
