Webinars on racism, anti-racism and racial equity

Webinars on racism, anti-racism and racial equity

These webinars are available in the language in which they were originally delivered, either English or French as noted below.

The National Collaborating Centre for Determinants of Health (NCCDH) has produced a suite of webinars and other related resources that, when reviewed together, serve as a substantive primer on racism, anti-racism and racial equity as they relate to public health practice.

This webinar series can be used for both individual and organizational learning.

As a group, they create the space to review relevant evidence and knowledge in an organizational setting. This includes important discussions about how public health institutions and the larger community should:

  • recognize racism as an oppressive system that harms health;
  • disrupt racism and colonialism in active ways; and
  • collaborate to invest in healthy communities.
