Dec 8 — Anti-Racism Policy Clinic

Date: Tues­day, Decem­ber 8th, 2020
Time: 1PM EST
Free for IMAA and MANO mem­bers
Ses­sion offered in Eng­lish

IMAA and MANO have part­nered to bring a series of pol­i­cy clin­ics to our mem­bers over the com­ing months.

The Anti-Racism Pol­i­cy Clin­ic looks to expand the sec­tor’s anti-racism work, not only by exam­in­ing exist­ing orga­ni­za­tion­al poli­cies, but by going beyond and explor­ing how these poli­cies are enact­ed, or not; how they con­tribute to sys­temic change or how they might hin­der real trans­for­ma­tion.

Facil­i­ta­tors will review a sam­ple of exist­ing poli­cies from the sec­tor, pro­vide feed­back and an action plan to see these acti­vat­ed by indi­cat­ing mile­stones and wins in a process that is com­plex, takes time, orga­ni­za­tion­al and sec­toral buy-in and requires both human and finan­cial resources.

Par­tic­u­lar atten­tion will be paid to the chal­lenges faced by orga­ni­za­tions as well as strate­gies to move beyond diver­si­ty and into inclu­sion, belong­ing, equi­ty and reten­tion.

The ses­sion will be facil­i­tat­ed by Malis­sa Bryan and Jess Notwell from the Rain­bow Diver­si­ty Insti­tute.

To sign up, please email Adri­ana at membership@mano-ramo.ca with the name of the per­son attend­ing from your orga­ni­za­tion, their job or vol­un­teer title/role, name of orga­ni­za­tion or group and email address.

Reg­is­tra­tions will be man­aged on a first come-first served basis as we are lim­it­ed to 24 par­tic­i­pants nation-wide.

If you would like to sub­mit your anti-racism poli­cies for review, please indi­cate whether these can be shared with the group at the clin­ic in an anonymized for­mat, or not. We will be col­lect­ing poli­cies until end of day on Novem­ber 23rd.
