Anti-O 101 Workshop at ECHA 2-121
Tuesday, October 25th
Our Anti-O 101 Workshop is an introductory workshop that explores anti-oppressive theory; understanding power and privilege; and concepts of equality, equity and justice. The workshop also has an interactive component in which participants can reflect on and navigate applying anti-oppressive concepts through scenarios they may encounter as students, employees and community members. Through the exploration of anti-oppression and related theories, you will investigate and discuss ideas of gender, equality and equity, and look at how to bring these back to your personal relationships and communities.
