What's Anti-Racism Good For Now? The 2017 University of Toronto IDERD Campaign

Monday, March 20, 2017 - 08:45 - 17:30

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.
