Event description

Description

As part of the Community Action Plan on Human Trafficking, Dr. Dustin Louie and ACT Alberta invite you to take part in a full day of learning and reflection. No matter the population you serve, we feel this is an exremely beneficial exercise for all who work with vulnerable populations. From Dr Louie:

This one-day course explores key topics in anti-oppressive education from a critical social justice perspective. Specifically, we will be analyzing and discussing power and privilege as they relate to Indigenous peoples within individual interactions and complex systems. Critical social justice theorists recognize inequality as deeply embedded within social structures. Critical perspectives on diversity in learning often reveal multiple inequalities that influence access to, treatment in, and outcomes of relationships with organizations and institutions. This course will challenge our assumptions and illustrate the unconscious ways we contribute to oppressive environments. The aim is not to assign blame, but instead equip participants with the tools to apply social justice principles within their everyday interactions.

Taking place at the University of Alberta, you and any of your staff/colleagues are invited to attend, but please be sure you have been invited through an ACT Alberta contact on this CAP project. Refreshments and lunch will be provided. We are very grateful for Dr. Louie's time, and that we are able to put this on as a FREE workshop. Please RSVP by June 9th.
