About this Event

This Fall, CBR Canada is linking webinars with live discussions on the theme Community-Based Research with Racialized Communities. A week following each webinar, CBR Canada invites CBR Canada members to participate in a live discussion and explore how to integrate learnings from the webinar.

This live discussion is the second in the series and is titled Researcher Identity and Privilege. On October 29th at 12 noon ET, webinar presenters, Ciann Wilson and Ann Marie Beals, will ask questions for participants to discuss in small groups. The event will end with a big group discussion and everything will be recorded live in a Google doc. We will reflect, problem solve and support each other in a safe discussion space.

The Zoom link will be emailed to registered participants.

This is a CBR Canada members only event. If you are employed, studying, or affiliated with any CBR Canada member institutions you are considered a member (see list). Individuals whose institution is not on this list are welcome to join as an individual member, learn more here. *Note there is a free membership option for registered community mobilizers.

We encourage you to join Ciann and Ann Marie's webinar "Proclaiming the Roots and Realities of Indigenous-Black Peoples on Turtle Island: A CBR Approach" on October 22nd at 12 noon ET live or watch the webinar recording, which we will be shared before the live discussion.

We look forward to seeing you there!

This series begins with a recognition that privilege exists at an intersection of factors such as gender, sexual orientation, income, lack of Indigenous sovereignty, and the social construction of race. Recognizing privilege is not enough, the next step is to listen and learn from the expertise and lived experience of BIPOC communities. We recognize that everyone will be coming to this discussion at their own stage in the journey of understanding the topic of community-led research and racialization. We ask participants to respect this within a safe and non-judgemental discussion space.
