The Ontario Association of Black Paralegals (OABP) is working with York University-TD Community Engagement CentreSTR Consulting and Potential Films Inc. to offer two workshop series for legal professionals, students and the community.

 

Navigating Racism in the Workplace is specifically designed to help Black legal professionals develop the tools to navigate racism and discrimination in the workplace. There are two other programs specific to community and students: Navigating Racism in Your Community and Navigating Racism in Your School.

Strategies for Impactful Allyship is specifically designed to empower impactful allies by helping them develop the tools to recognize, denounce and combat racism and discrimination in the workplace. 

 

"We find ourselves presently at a national dialogue and discourse on racial inequities. This is a shift for many, those who are most impacted have been seeking changes, and others are grappling to find grounding in this national conversation. These converging meeting places offer us great hope, as it allows for everyone to be a part of the movement towards eradicating racial injustice."
