IDERD is observed annually on March 21. The United Nations proclaimed this day in 1966 to honour the 69 lives lost at a peaceful demonstration against the apartheid “pass laws” in Sharpeville, South Africa, in 1960.
Hart House, the Office of the Vice-President, Human Resources & Equity and the Anti-Racism & Cultural Diversity Office present the IDERD Conference to reaffirm our commitment to the principles of equity, diversity and inclusion, and our continuing efforts to address discrimination and racism across our three campuses. IDERD aims to bring together stakeholders and participants not only from U of T but from other post-secondary institutions that are committed to anti-racism work.
The theme of this year’s event is “Why anti-racism work still matters within learning communities and beyond. Please visit the event registration page for more information about the day’s activities.
Also, the U of T IDERD Recognition Awards nominations period has been extended until Monday, February 25, 2019. Please take time to recognize a student, faculty or staff member who has worked to advance anti-racism and create an equitable community. Award winners will be celebrated at the IDERD Conference.
