Join Lauren Burrows of Wilfrid Laurier University’s Diversity and Equity Office to explore the dynamics of power and oppression that surface in our partnership work, and to identify key understanding and actions needed to become a better ally.
In the webinar, participants will learn about critical allyship:
- Thinking critically about both systems of oppression and our role within them
- Being self-reflexive about the ways in which we reproduce these systems of oppression
- Unlearning ideologies and dismantling systems that support the unjust treatment of others
This webinar will begin with an introduction to anti-oppression concepts like micro-aggressions and intent vs. impact, followed by practical examples of how to be an ally (and a better ally) within partnerships through daily practices of accountability (e.g. responding to moments of exclusion and when you make a mistake).
This webinar is hosted by Collaborative Leadership in Practice (CLiP).
