Workshop Overview

This workshop is designed to enhance service delivery and promote cultural competency in organizations by focusing on working with refugees from an anti-oppression approach. Participants will gain a deeper understanding of the barriers faced by racialized newcomer refugees. In addition, participants will be able to think of ways of including anti-oppression principles in their practices and be able to reflect on their own biases and privileges. Information presented is based on lived-experiences and community-based research.

Participants will explore the following topics:

  • —  Cultural competency, anti-oppression, and intersectionality
  • —  Social and cultural issues impacting refugees, focusing on the Middle East
  • —  Causes and consequences of the refugee experience
  • —  Trends in immigration to Canada
  • —  Personal and cultural biases in working with refugees
  • —  Promising practices in working with refugees
