This is a two-week program, designed for Unifor members who are Black, Indigenous and/or Workers of Colour. It takes place over 2 one-week sessions.
This program is for members who identify and have lived their life tackling oppression in their day-to-day. It’s an incredible opportunity for local unions to build the strengths and skills of members whose voices and leadership are desperately needed if we want to respond to today’s challenges. For participants, this program is designed to give you the tools you need to make a difference in your union. We discuss and strategize around removing barriers to participation of, and decision-making by, BIWOC workers. We focus on the challenges of doing anti-racism work in the union and in society more broadly.
This program is intended to build the skills, knowledge and confidence of BIWOC members to increase their activism and take up positions of leadership within the union.
