The Principal's Office at Humber Lakeshore Campus, in partnership with the Human Resources and Organizational Effectiveness Team, is excited to continue the Principal's Office Wellness Talk Series for Humber students, staff, and the general community.

For January 2021, we have partnered with Humber Indigenous Education and Engagement and Humber LGBTQ+ to present:

  • Dr. James Makokis, Canada's Two-Spirit, Diversity, Indigenous Health, and First Nation Expert
  • Anthony Johnson, LGBTQ2, Two-Spirit, and Diversity Expert. 

After travelling across six provinces, one territory, and 14 cities, James Makokis (Cree) and Anthony Johnson (Navajo/Diné) are the first Indigenous, Two-Spirit couple to win The Amazing Race Canada. 

In this talk, Representation Matters - Becoming Better Allies, James and Anthony will share their personal transformations, from their early years facing adversity around two-spirit and Indigenous identities to a lifetime of education, transforming them into leaders, activists, and role models. They will explore the impacts of colonialism on Indigenous health and wellness, tips for overcoming challenges and discrimination, and helpful strategies we can all use to build a culture of inclusivity in our lives, institutions, and classrooms.

Strategies-for-Challenging-Anti-Black-Racism-Part-I

Monday, February 1, 2021 
10 a.m. - 12 p.m. Eastern Time 
*This webinar will not be recorded*

Facilitators: Adam Benn, Manager Education & Training, and Sacha Ally, Specialist, Humber's Centre for Human Rights, Equity & Diversity.

Anti-Black racism is prejudice, attitudes, beliefs, stereotyping and/ or discrimination that is directed at people of African descent and is rooted in their unique history and experience of enslavement and colonization (Confronting Anti-Black Racism Unity, City of Toronto). Anti-Black racism is not new; it has persisted for hundreds of years. However, recent media coverage of the impacts of anti-Black racism has brought greater awareness to the issue.

This two (2) hour workshop will explore the roots of anti-Black racism in colonialism, and will begin exploring how anti-Black racism manifests through online racial microaggressions. Participants will also explore case studies and explore key theories on anti-Black Racism.

Humber Virtual Pathways Fair 2021

Program Planning Development & Renewal and the Office of the Registrar would like to invite you to attend Humber’s first-ever Virtual Pathways Fair.

During this difficult time, this event will allow you and our students to learn about the pathway agreements at Humber and at our partner institutions. This is also a great opportunity for the Humber community to build relationships with institutions that are sending us students and receiving our graduates. Articulated pathways are great selling features for prospective students and their parents. Also, our graduates moving on to work, graduate studies, law school, and other post Humber successes, lead to great recruitment stories.

We’re encouraging everyone to attend and make this event a success. 70+ partners will be in attendance, supporting Humber and it’s students. The fee collected from this event will go towards scholarships to assist our students financially.

We hope to see you there.

In the chaos of a global pandemic, the urge to wrap up our crumbling health and social safety infrastructures in neat, technology-driven solutions is very strong. Yet we know from history and experience that technological acceleration increases social inequality and entrenches polarization and austerity. Under the shadow of these conditions, we grow distant from one another, and loneliness becomes a public health concern.

In this talk, Saadia Muzaffar shares stories and experiences that have taught her the value of cultivating solidarity by talking to strangers, coming together and dreaming of many possible futures, and resisting the message of inevitability especially when it comes to technological change.

This lecture will be live-streamed.
