Working While Black Webinar Series

January 23, 2017

On February 13, 2017 in honour of Black History Month, the Canadian Labour Congress is launching “Working While Black”, an educational and interactive webinar series for workers of colour and allies.

The series will celebrate the contributions of Black activists and organizers in Canada, strengthen solidarity across movements, and build skills and knowledge for confronting anti-Black racism in workplaces and communities today. Participants will be able to engage with speakers and share lived experiences with each other.

By the end of the series, participants will have developed tools and strategies that work towards our goal: building workplaces and communities that are inclusive and free from racism and discrimination.
