Developing Anti-Racism Awareness

In support  of challenges related to anti-racism, the Ontario Institute for Education Leadership (IEL) has developed this resource which is intended to help school and system leaders acknowledge and embrace the tensions involved in disrupting all forms of racism and oppression.

This resource consists of selected readings that offer interventions and tools that will help leaders integrate anti-racism and anti-oppression understandings and enactments in their daily work and practice. These readings provide a springboard for learning that is enhanced by an ongoing process of reading, reflection, and discussion with others that together will:  

·      Promote equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) as a central stance in leaders’ everyday work.

·      Provide school and system leaders with preliminary resources and support to deepen their understanding of anti-racism.

·      Serve as an entry point that fosters reflection, dialogue, and action, leading to continuous strengthening of equitable leadership.

Selected readings and suggested approaches for using the readings can be found by clicking on Resource.
