This session (part 1 of 2) introduces participants to the Coin Model of Privilege, Critical Allyship and other approaches to anti-oppressive practice. These frameworks help deepen our understanding of the impact of unearned advantage and disadvantage in different contexts. Participants will reflect on their relationship with different systems of oppression, and ways to foster equity and inclusion in their patient engagement work and the healthcare system more broadly.
As part of creating a meaningful learning experience, participants will be invited to complete pre-work associated with each session, such as reviewing short videos or doing personal reflection. This will be emailed to participants in advance of the session.
This session is offered in English with simultaneous interpretation in French. ASL/LSQ will also be available on request.
