Accountable Space Workshop

Accountable Space Workshop
Tuesday, October 18, 2016 - 1:00pm to 3:30pm

Sponsored by the Office of Graduate Studies, this session will assist participants in cultivating accountable classrooms and respectfully “calling out” problematic classroom interventions. In groups, participants will be invited to work through challenging scenarios that offer an opportunity to foster techniques for engaging in critical social justice conversations. It is important to be cognizant of fellow students’ self-esteem during these conversations, but also be willing to risk discomfort in order to address discriminatory conduct.

Workshop lead by NICOLE BERNHARDT

Nicole Bernhardt is an experienced trainer, investigator and mediator in the fields of equity, anti-harassment, and human rights. In addition to her professional activities, she is currently completing a PhD at York University, conducting research into the efficacy of systemic equity-driven change efforts within the framework of human rights.

There is limited seating, please RSVP by sending an email to gradstudies@ocadu.ca
