Workshop description from the Bakau Consulting website:

Fundamentals of Anti-oppression dives deeper than your typical diversity and inclusion workshop. In this workshop, participants are given the opportunity to explore systemic oppression, social justice, privilege, identity and allyship through a variety of engaging activities. Through self-reflection, community- based inquiry, lessons from history and collaborative problem solving, participants gain the knowledge and skills to view the world through an anti- oppressive lens.

Don’t miss the benefits of attending this workshop in person. Having access to the recording has been arranged for those who are unable to attend on the 17th. Attending the workshop on June 17th will make a difference to our shared experience and learning and to BC public libraries and communities.
