Program Schedule

Power and Global Health Day: Being a Good Relative and Allyship in Action Workshop

Thursday, November 23, 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm
Community Room, Weldon Library

Join us for this workshop on allyship in action, presented by Sisco, a London, Ontario-based consulting firm specializing in Indigenous community-based consulting.

This workshop will support Western faculty, staff and students in learning about how they can start a journey towards settler allyship or being a good relative.

Participants will:

  • gain an understanding of Canada’s settler colonial history and ongoing context, anti-Indigenous institutional racism in post-secondary education, and the local Indigenous community context
  • learn about the unsettling cycle and how to commit to this critical work to inform allyship and being a good relative in action at Western
  • engage with applied techniques to help address systemic barriers through unsettling practices at Western

Seating for this Power and Global Health Day session is limited. Watch for registration information to come soon!
