Beginning on Oct. 22, the Centre for Human Rights, Equity & Inclusion (REI) at York University will launch its Respect, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (REDI) workshop series for the 2019-20 academic year. REDI aims to engage faculty, staff and students in valuable knowledge exchange through a series of educational and professional development opportunities.
The eight-session series emphasizes the importance of upholding human rights principles throughout campus, while championing equity and inclusion values. With a presentation and facilitated dialogues, participants will reflect on policies, relevant experiences and case scenarios that will help them appreciate and apply their learning.
Participants who attend at least three sessions receive a certificate of recognition.
Community members can register and participate in sessions at any time of the year to count towards their certificate of completion in human rights. The full list of sessions is available on the REI website.
Online registration is now open. Spaces are limited and early registration is recommended. Visit rights.info.yorku.ca/redipd to register today.
