Dr Denise O'Neil Green, Vice-President, Equity and Community Inclusion (ECI)

The White Privilege Conference - Global will be hosted at Ryerson University (May 9 - 12, 2018). This conference will address issues of systemic injustice and oppression prevalent in Canadian society. Constantly praised for its inclusiveness and image of progressive tolerance, polite racism and inequity are far more prevalent in Canadian Society than one can imagine. Thus, topics of whiteness and white supremacy are seldom addressed in an honest and intentional manner. Join Dr. Green as she talks with our panellist: Eddie Moore (founder of the White Privilege Conference in the United States); Ritu Bhasin (Keynote Speaker and President of BCI Associates); Jeewan Chanicka (Institute leader and Superintendent of Equity, Anti-Racism and Anti-Oppression with the TDSB) Rinaldo Walcott (Canadian Writer, Associate Professor, Director of Women and Gender Studies Institute)
