APSC Anti-Racism Speaker Series: Anthonia Ogundele

This session is part of UBC Applied Sciences’ Anti-Racism Speaker Series.

The Anti-Racism Dialogue Series invited Indigenous, Black and Persons of Colour (IBPOC) to speak on anti-racism with context around how colonial institutions have impacted the lived experiences of IBPOC communities, ranging from broader oppressive systems (including academia and professional industries) to interpersonal relationships (such as microaggressions). Our hope is that these conversation will inspire attendees to critically self-reflect and to commit to anti-racism within their own daily lives as well.
