Active Allyship in the Workplace – How to Create an Anti-Racist Space that Benefits All Employees

BC’s low unemployment rate is giving some workers an advantage. Employers are using strategies to appeal to potential employees, investing in recruitment bonuses and increasing benefits to boost retention. But, in this competitive environment, BC’s evolving workforce is looking for employers to also offer something more fundamental –– an equitable, anti-racist workplace.

The Taking Action! lecture series offers fresh ideas from anti-racism activists outside of our province. This January we will be hosting UK Author, TED Speaker, and equalities advocate Sophie Williams who will be leading a presentation about the fundamentals of active allyship in the workplace and daily life.

Following the lecture Sophie will be joined in discussion by moderator Sharon Thira, Executive Director of Engagement and Education at the BC’s Office of the Human Rights Commissioner.
