Career Talk - Anti-Black Racism


Join us for our Career Talk series looking at tackling Anti-Black Racism in the workplace.

Are you aware that Black workers experience systemic racism and discrimination in the workplace even though the Canadian government purports that everyone has a right to be treated fairly in workplaces, free from discrimination?

Black workers report that racism in the workplace is a problem and they have been treated unfairly regarding the hiring, pay, and promotional practices of employers.

Be empowered!

Know your rights!
