Description

Have you ever observed racism in the workplace? Did you want to speak up but felt unsure? We want to deepen your understanding of what racism is and how it functions.

While some professional programs (education, law, medicine) are beginning to implement anti-racist, anti-oppressive education, there is still immense need for engineering and technical disciplines to take up this work. Join us as we lay the groundwork for engaging in anti-racism action. In addition to lecture components, this course will include activities and discussion to consolidate the learning.

Course Outline

This course covers some foundational anti-racist, anti-oppressive concepts:

  • Race as a social (rather than biological) construct
  • Intersectional, constructed identity
  • Whiteness as a system of racial hierarchy
  • Detours to anti-racism
  • Deficit discourses
