SESSION 5 – August 5

Race and Ethnicity in Canada

This session will dive into an interactive conversation regarding race and ethnicity. Participants will unpack the terms “race” and “ethnicity” as social constructs within a Canadian context. They will discuss the benefits of a more culturally diverse workforce and how workplaces can celebrate, leverage, and support racial diversity. It also discusses how to build cultural competence and awareness.
