What's Anti-Racism Good For Now? The 2017 University of Toronto IDERD Campaign
It’s 2017. Canada celebrates its 150th anniversary. Yet racism is still with us. We’ve taken steps against it, but it’s still rooted in our institutions. How are our post-secondary institutions – faculty, staff, students and administration - responding? What aren’t we doing right? This year’s IDERD Campaign,"What’s Anti-Racism Good for Now?", presents an opportunity to explore these troubling questions.
On March 20th, join us for a thought-provoking conference, with keynotes, panels and roundtable discussions. Then, on March 21st we present our annual IDERD Awards Ceremony, both events at the St. George Campus, U of T.
The U of T IDERD Campaign was launched in March 2012 in commemoration of the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. The tri-campus communication campaign is implemented annually as a key part of the University’s ongoing effort to eliminate racial discrimination and advance anti-racism, throughout the University community.
The IDERD Campaign also provides a unique platform for the University to recognize and profile the excellent work that students, staff and faculty are undertaking to advance anti-racism while contributing to the University’s commitment to create diverse, equitable and inclusive teaching, learning and working environments.
