Details

IDERD is observed annually on March 21. The United Nations proclaimed this day in 1966 to honour the 69 lives lost at a peaceful demonstration against the apartheid “pass laws” in Sharpeville, South Africa, in 1960.

The University of Toronto hosts the IDERD Conference to reaffirm its commitment to the principles of equity, diversity and inclusion, and its continuing efforts to address discrimination and racism across our three campuses. It aims to bring together stakeholders and participants not only from U of T, but as well as other post-secondary institutions which are committed to anti-racism work.

The theme of this year’s event is Why anti-racism work still matters within learning communities and beyond. Please visit the event registration page for more information about the day’s activities.

This year’s event is co-hosted by the Office of the Vice-President, Human Resources & Equity and the Anti-Racism & Cultural Diversity Office, in partnership with Hart House.
