Get ‘REDDI’ for 2024: sign up for workshops on systemic inequities

Equity, diversity, inclusion

York University community members are invited to register now for the Winter 2024 REDDI (Rights, Equity, Diversity, Decolonization & Inclusion) miniseries workshops, offered through the Centre for Human Rights, Equity & Inclusion.

Sessions begin on Jan. 8, 2024, and cover a wide range of topics to ensure University community members are prepared to address systemic inequities.

In furthering the goals of the York University Academic Plan and the DEDI (Decolonizing, Equity, Diversity & Inclusion) Strategy, the REDDI certificate workshop sessions are designed to provide opportunities for community members to learn, reflect upon and discuss ways to contribute to an equitable academic environment.

Each session will run for approximately 90 minutes and will be offered virtually, to facilitate the attendance of participants on and off campus.

All students, staff and faculty are invited to attend REDDI workshops. Sessions cover topics including challenging ableism, addressing racism, dialogues across difference and more. The series also features French sessions on: creed-based harassment and discrimination, called “Créer et maintenir des espaces positifs;” anti-racism work, called “Reconnaître et aborder le racisme;” and allyship, called “Lutter contre la discrimination.”

Participants who complete three full-length core workshops will receive a REDDI series certificate. The Winter 2024 workshops are also an opportunity for participants to attend and add onto their requirements for the REDDI miniseries certificates.

REDDI miniseries workshops also offer certificates of completion. For certificates to be awarded following a miniseries, three miniseries workshops plus one full-length workshop must be attended.

To see the available workshops, and their descriptions, for the Winter 2024 term, visit the CHREI REDDI page.

Registration for these workshops is required and can be accessed through the YU Learn Learning Opportunities website. To learn more about York’s new DEDI Strategy, click here.
