The University of Toronto and Canadian universities and colleges across the country are coming together to facilitate a national conversation to develop concrete actions for change in higher education and in our communities.
The National Dialogues are a series of national forums focused on addressing equity and inclusion in Canadian post-secondary education. The first in the series is a National Dialogue that will focus on anti-Black racism and Black inclusion in Canadian higher education, and will take place on Thursday, October 1 and Friday, October 2, 12 p.m. – 4 p.m. (ET).
This year’s Dialogues and Action will focus on sharing experiences and ideas, exploring and learning best practices, and contributing to the formulation and implementation of concrete actions that resolutely reject anti-Black racism and drive meaningful, enduring Black inclusion within individual universities and colleges; the higher education sector, in general; and our communities.
Over the course of two days, participants will have the opportunity to choose from amongst nine interactive online sessions with panelists from academia and beyond.
