The ILPA Black Lives Matter series is FREE and you can book your place HERE.
ILPA would like to invite you to join us for the second webinar in our Black Lives Matter series 'Challenging Racism: power, insult and microaggressions in the workplace'. When conducting our 'ILPA explores racism in the immigration sector' survey, time and time again the issue of microaggressions and the subtleties of racism and were brought up by you. With 66% of respondents saying that they did not have the necessary knowledge and skills available to them to adequately address racism when they experienced it first hand we wanted to facilitate a space to discuss these issues.
This session will explore the definition of microagressions, the subtleties of racism, to share experiences and highlight some anecdotal and uncomfortable evidence from our survey results highlighting the prevalence of racism within the immigration sector, and aims to better equip you to have those difficult conversations and challenge racism, no matter how subtle.
For every roundtable in the Black Lives Matter series we are providing and accompanying reading list to support everyone to continue their journey of learning and unlearning. This series reading list is:
