Challenging Discrimination Through Community Conversations; Session 3: Understanding and Addressing Anti-Muslim Hate in Canada

November 3rd, 5:00 - 6:00 PM (MST)
Are you concerned about the recent rise of Anti-Muslim hate crimes in the Edmonton area? Scholars have pointed out that these incidents are beyond the scope of Islamophobia, and are motivated by hate in our communities. In this online roundtable discussion, we will explore the unique struggles faced by Muslim women and the dangers of allowing anti-Muslim hate to go unchallenged. Join us for an in-depth discussion with Dr. Farha Shariff and Dr. Munah Saleh on the consequences of anti-Muslim sentiment and how bystanders can safely intervene.

Public Workshop; Building Inclusive Workplaces and Practices

December 16th, 1:00 - 4:00 PM (MST)
This interactive workshop, sponsored by REACH Edmonton, will focus on tools to recognize, articulate, understand, examine, challenge, and change workplace practices with the lens of using curiosity, collaboration, and conversation as a response and reinforcing that learning organizations use these moments (of potential constructive conflict) as learning opportunities. Supervisors and employees will consider their separate but interconnected roles in creating and maintaining inclusive workplaces.

Public Workshop; Understanding and Mitigating Bias

November 9th, 1:00 - 4:00 PM (MST)
Taking an intersectional approach, this workshop, sponsored by REACH Edmonton, will help participants to build their understanding of bias and practice steps that can be taken to limit the impact of unconscious biases on our decisions and behaviours. Participants will enhance their self-awareness of their own biases, build understanding of their social conditioning, identify their biases and assumptions, and learn how strategies to mitigate biases at the personal and organizational levels.
