Groups from across the University have been developing resources to help staff and students self-educate about the lived realities of racism, recognise white privilege and develop antiracist practice.
All colleagues and students are invited to join in this initiative to nurture confidence to engage in conversations about race, racism and antiracism among the wider University community. Over Semester 1 and 2 we are piloting a series of informal webinars each led by a Brookes colleague with lived experience and/or related expertise.
All events in Semester 1 will take place via Zoom on Tuesdays, 5.30 to 6.30pm. Registration for the events is via Eventbrite.
