Race Awareness and anti-racism session – 29 February

The session will provide the opportunity to learn about racism and the various forms in which it can manifest in society. Sensitive themes will be explored such as racial microaggressions and language. Through group activities, participants will be able to critically think and understand the importance of influences and how this can impact decision making and behaviour.
