AMM Education Webinar: Anti-Racism 101

Virtual ‘seating’ is limited…register today!

Over the past few months, racism has been front and centre in the news. Many people are expressing shock and outrage regarding incidents of racism and hate right here in Manitoba. People are grappling with terms such as privilege, unconscious bias, micro-aggressions and systemic racism, wondering where to ask their questions and what to say and do.

At the same time, while we know that people who experience racism can be traumatized by the inaction of bystanders, most people freeze up when they witness incidents of racism, largely due to a lack of skills.

This webinar will examine:

* The history of the concept of “race” and the experience of racism in Canada;

* What is privilege? What is systemic racism?  What are micro-aggressions?;

* How to be aware of and reduce unconscious bias?;

* How to interrupt racism and tackle uncomfortable conversations?;

* How you as a municipal official can expand your leadership skills as you create a safer communities.

Please note that all video cameras will be turned off during the entire webinar.

Due to the interactive nature of this webinar, participation is limited to 25 people. Registration fee is $110 plus GST per person.

Registration transfers will be accommodated. Cancellations will not be accepted. AMM will invoice following this event.
