Key Learning Out Comes
Anti-racist Workplace Practices
Being an anti-racist workplace extends beyond company values and having good managers, it includes every aspect of the company’s operations—from what it produces, to what vendors it uses.
Building Workplace Belonging
Stepping up as an anti-racist goes beyond the vulnerability of admitting to what we do not know and actively working to deepen our awareness and then being intentional about putting into practice what is learned; 365 days of the year.

This section breaks down in detail the do’s & don’ts of being an intentional ally. Action & Accountability Inclusive Lenses: Indigenous, Immigrant & Afrocentric Experiences Being supportive of another community cannot be expressed only in affirmation and conversations alone.
