Anti-racism Workshop

This course provides coaching skills and tools to those seeking ways to talk about “messy stuff” such as racism and oppression.

Whether you are in a private or public organization, whether you are government or non-profit, this course provides historical information, foundational tools, and a safe space to talk confidently about:

  • The creation of race and the system of oppression
  • (Un)conscious bias and the connection to micro-aggressions, prejudice, discrimination
  • Code-switching
  • The good-bad binary
  • Impact on equity groups (women, Indigenous people, ethnically visible people, Black Canadians, Asians)
  • How to be an anti-racist and anti-oppressive workplace

This course prepares you to effectively address employees’ needs for working and thriving in safe and psychologically healthy DEI-ready workplaces. It also prepares you to support employees’ needs to manage and meet their goals of working in a diverse, equitable and inclusive workplace because their workplace is experienced as anti-oppressive and anti-racist.

The sensitive nature of (un)conscious bias requires participants to feel comfortable, safe and confident talking about the visible and invisible ways bias appears in organizations and society. A safe and supportive space is created and maintained so that participants gain relevant tools and information to begin the journey of learning about their own biases and those of their colleagues. Participants will get to practice without judgment, using powerful coaching communication tools and processes available throughout this course.

This Anti-racism course is a resource for anyone interested in creating DEI-ready organizations that are psychologically safe, healthy, and conducive for each person to work to their full potential.

Course Learning Objectives:

  1. Cultivate trust and safety, with a safe and supportive environment that fosters inclusive, diverse perspectives 
  2. Build the foundation for talking about messy and uncomfortable topics, using a coaching process
  3. Build awareness and anti-racism practice into the organizational structure
