Are you interested in learning how to talk across difference?

  • Does learning more about Indigenous and non-Indigenous relationships in Canada intrigue you?
  •  Do you have a passion for a more equitable and just society?
  • Then participating in an intergroup dialogue could be for you!

What is an Intergroup Dialogue?

An intergroup dialogue is a safe and meaningful way of addressing social justice issues including topics on racism, sexism, classism, etc. It is a structured but flexible process that brings together participants from two social identity groups in order to learn and gain an understanding from each other’s perspectives.

When and where will this take place?

This fall an intergroup dialogue will be held on campus in the Indigenous Knowledges & Social Work Research Room (501 Tier Building) for 3 hours a week from mid-October to the beginning of December 2015.

Why should I participate?

Participants will be able to meet new people and learn how to communicate in a healthy and effective way with others about difficult topic areas such as racism. Along with these benefits, participants will also have a chance of obtaining co-curricular record in recognition for their participation!
