Furthering Anti-Racism, asynchronously.
Over the past few weeks, a significant number of colleagues have engaged with live events taking place as part of LCC’s Anti-Racism Staff Development programme and have become members of the LCC Anti-Racism Teams site. Over the summer, colleagues can keep developing understanding and practice of anti-racism via a range of online resources and asynchronous activities.
In the Teams site you can find recordings and slides from most of the live events that have recently taken place, and watch videos from the Racism at Work webinar series by Pearn Kandola, covering topics such as Covid-19 and Anti-Chinese Prejudice and Being an Active Bystander.
We’ve all done the online Breaking Bias module now, but it really only scratches the surface, so further your understanding by listening to a podcast of UAL students speaking as part the Beyond Breaking Bias activity designed by Vikki Hill.
If you fancy something more hands-on, you can participate in Culture Jamming Media Representation of #BLM through a self-directed activity designed by Alejandro Abraham Hamanoiel. On the Teams site you’ll find some examples already posted by colleagues.
There are two other two asynchronous activities on the Teams site from me: One offering information and the chance to discuss the policy and practice of Positive Action and another offering an approach to Decolonising your Curricula.
You’ll also find on the Teams site lots more useful resources shared by members, and this adaptation of Eddie Moore Jr’s 21-Day Racial Equity Habit Building Challenge.
Existing members of the Teams site should be able to open the above links automatically in Teams. If you are UAL staff but not yet a member, click on the link and request to join the Team. And look out for more live events as part of September’s staff development weeks!
