Exploring Equity, Inclusion and Diversity in Educational Leadership
Time & Location
About the event
The Equitable Leadership Network within the Faculties of Education and Medicine is proud to host our first of three workshop events of our EDIA series on March 30th, 2021. The event is free and open to all, we look forward to seeing you there!
9am – 10:30 am Dr. Chris Vieler-Porter will give a talk entitled Disparities by design: implications for institutions which will answer the question of whether the under-representation of BAME people in leadership in education was a matter of chance, coincidence, or design.
2pm-3:30pm Dr. Maddie Venables and Amanda Larocque will lead a workshop entitled Addressing racism in Indigenous health – Moving beyond systemic reassurance. Canadians are often inadequately exposed to the history and culture of Indigenous populations leading to the persistence of systemic-wide barriers in their healthcare (i.e., lack of understanding, cultural competency, jurisdictional disputes in healthcare delivery, etc.). The workshop session will provide a brief overview of Indigenous health and share experiences from the perspective of a First Nations person. They will also explore the meaning of systemic reassurance and will work towards bridging the gap of Indigenous health inequalities by completing a group exercise.
3:30pm – 5pm Dr. Denice Lewis will lead a workshop entitled So now what? Effecting anti-racism change in postgraduate medical curriculum. The session will walk through the development of an anti-racist curriculum.
