Join us for a conversation about race and racism at UBC. Rule Out Racism is a week-long series of events organized by the Equity & Inclusion Office focused on the need for greater literacy and conversation about race and racism within the UBC community in the Okanagan.
Taking place from March 19th to 23rd, this year’s campaign features a highly provocative program including a panel discussion “Race Matters in Leadership”. This engaging workshop provides an opportunity to learn about the politics of hair, a film screening & discussion on anti-racism resistance, and interactive booths about racism at UBCO and white privilege.
Rule Out Racism events are free and open to everyone in the UBC community.
