Self-Awareness: Foundational Work in Equity & Anti-Oppression

Jan 11, 2022 06:30 PM to 08:30 PM
Microsoft Teams Virtual Meeting

Registration Deadline: Jan 10, 2022 06:30 PM

Addressing systemic oppression exists both within and outside of ourselves. We often talk about "doing the personal work" but what work are we to do? How do we do it? This workshop will give you the opportunity to do some of this reflection in community with both the support and challenge of fellow students as we think about how to do that work within our personal lives.

We will start promptly at 5 minutes past the hour but will not be letting new participants in after 20 minutes into the workshop as per student request to care for the relationships and trust that gets built for group work. This should not impact students who get dropped from the call and have to re-enter.

An optional 5 minute meditation will be offered after this workshop.

*Registration is required so that we can send you the meeting link ahead of time and sometimes we also send some resources to briefly review before the wokshop starts. Please ensure to read your Registration Confirmation email for more details and keep an eye out for the workshop link arriving in your inbox or spam folder via the Event Reminder email within 24 hours of the workshop time & date as well as an additional email with the resources to review before the workshop. Note: if there are not enough attendees, a workshop can be cancelled in which case an email will be sent to you.
