About this Event

This Fall, CBR Canada is trying a new approach of learning together by linking webinars with live discussions. First, speakers in our three-part webinar and discussion series on Community-Based Research with Racialized Communities will showcase their experiences as community-based researchers working with racialized communities across Canada. A week following each webinar, CBR Canada invites the network to come together in a live discussion to dive deeper and explore how to integrate learnings from each webinar into your own research projects or work.

This first live discussion in the series will focus on the theme of BIPOC (black, Indigenous, and people of colour) community-led research. Webinar speaker, Ngozi Joe-Ikechebelu, will pose two important questions related this theme for our on-line discussion on October 1st at 12pm Est. Participants will break into smaller groups to discuss and come back to share thoughts and ideas as a larger group. Everything will be recorded live in a Google doc, although the discussion itself will not be recorded. We will reflect, problem solve and support each other in a safe discussion space.

We will share a Zoom link for registered participants in a follow-up email.

We encourage you to join Ngozi's webinar "Opportunities and barriers for genuine participation of racialized communities in CBR: A social determinants of health case study with Sub-Saharan African Women Living with HIV (SSAWLH) in BC" on September 24th at 12pm Est live or watch the webinar recording, which we will share before the live discussion.

We look forward to seeing you there!

This series begins with a recognition that privilege exists at an intersectionality of factors such as gender, sexual orientation, income, and the social construction of race. Recognizing privilege is not enough, the next step is to listen and learn from the leadership 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.
