Queen's University Human Rights & Equity Office Training

A recommended starting place for those who would like to explore and consider their own identity and positionality is the “Power, Privilege and Bias” module. While this module does not speak directly to racism or anti-racist action, an exploration of the themes of ‘power, privilege and bias’ is integral to building and progressing a foundational understanding of how racism operates, anti-racism and corresponding anti-racist action.
