Event description


This NCCDH on-demand webinar focuses on the importance of advancing racial health equity.

Recognizing the importance of using a racial equity lens in addressing all the requirements set out in the Health Equity Standard under the Ontario Public Health Standards, this on-demand webinar will describe the different forms and levels of racism, why racism is a public health issue and the public health roles for racial equity.

This content explores the meaning of embracing a decolonial, anti-racist practice, and identifies the tools needed to begin on that journey.

Listeners will learn about:

  • institutional, systemic and individual racism and their impact on health;
  • intersectionality, anti-oppression, allyship and systems change and how these relate to anti-racist action;
  • how racial equity fits with the Ontario Public Health Foundational Standards; and
  • public health’s role in leading racial equity work.
