Workshops

Our workshops are interactive and discussion based. Our goal is to set you up with a foundation, and give you a toolkit to start having important conversations. We always emphasize that the world and language are changing rapidly. It is okay to feel uncomfortable and not know the answers! We are here to help you get started. 

RACE, POWER & PRIVILEGE

Angela Y. Davis said “In a racist society it is not enough to be non-racist, we must be anti-racist.” Learn how to take the first steps to reflect on your own power and privilege and begin on the path of anti-racism.

ANTI-BLACK RACISM & ALLYSHIP ​

What exactly is anti-Black racism and how does it affect businesses, communities, and individuals in Canada? We can facilitate discussion and teach you ways that you can be a more effective ally.

GENDER & SEXUALTIY

Gender and sexuality are important parts of all of our identities. This training will give you better understanding of how to be more inclusive towards people of any genders and sexuality in your personal and professional life.

COLONIZATION IN BRITISH COLUMBIA​

The systemic impacts of colonization are alive and well in Canada. As settlers on this land, it is all of our duties to understand how we can decolonize our minds, our actions and our professional work. We can help you get started.

INDIGENOUS AWARENESS​

We live, work and play on beautiful unceded lands, yet we rarely acknowledge the rich Indigenous culture that came before us and continues to influence our national culture. A follow up to our Colonization in British Columbia workshop, join us to gain a new sense of appreciation for Indigenous people and some tools to be a better ally.

We would like to acknowledge that we speak from places of privilege as we do not experience all forms of discrimination as a lived reality. Through our workshops, we aim to raise awareness and amplify the voices of all marginalized folks.

We acknowledge that the land on which we live, work and play is the traditional, ancestral, and unceded (stolen) territory of the Kwantlen, xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish), and səl̓ilw̓ətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) (phoentically tSLAY-wah-tooth) territories. We also acknowledge this is only a very small piece of raising awareness around decolonization, and we endeavour to continue learning how we can centre the voices of Black, Indigenous, Mixed and People of Colour.
