Did you just say that??

Anti-Discrimination in the Classroom Workshop.

OCADU has policy in place to help keep our learning environment safe and free from discrimination. What happens when a line is crossed and the classroom no longer feels safe? How do you tell an instructor their comments are inappropriate when they hold so much power? Or how do you tell peers their actions are making you feel uncomfortable?

Join the OCAD Student Union Advocate Robin Fraser in collaboration with XPACE Cultural Centre and the Diversity and Equity Office to learn what resources are available to you.

The workshop is free and open to anyone, but please RSVP to [email protected] to reserve your spot.

1pm – 3pm
Room 287
