Since the first person of African descent first arrived, in 1608, on the soil of what we now call Canada, the Black population in this country has grown to over 1.2 million people. This growth has not been without adversity and discrimination in both community and workplace environments. Recognizing past, on-going and systemic anti-Black racism embedded into institutions and accepted practices is a key step in building a different type of future – one that is equitable, empowering and inclusive.
In this session, we will explore:
💥 How anti-Black racism has been established within a Canadian context
💥 The impact it has on Black individuals, particularly within the workplace settings
💥 Concepts like the Black Tax and silent labour
💥 Considerations for building safer environments where Black colleagues may often still be “the only”, “the first”, or one of “very few”
