In this module, participants examine core concepts and terminology related to race and racism in governance. Participants explore the dimensions of social identity using an intersectional approach to understand how systemic racism is manifested in governance.
Participants deconstruct racism by challenging traditional concepts of race and racism, including the evasion of race. They examine the impact of racism on Indigenous, Black and other racialized individuals and communities, with a focus on racism in governance.
At the end of the module, participants should have a deeper understanding of terminology related to race, and how systemic racism is a barrier to advancing DEI in governance.
