The resurgence of the Black Lives Matter movement in 2020 saw an overdue call for people to reflect and learn about the way society privileges whiteness and normalises racism.
Research has found strong connections between exposure to racism and an increased likelihood of experiencing anxiety, depression, stress, loneliness and isolation, and increased suicidality among other mental health challenges. But don’t be fooled into thinking this is a result of overt, hateful racist acts alone. A crucial learning point for all is understanding that racism also exists covertly, systemically, and is woven through the fabric of our society.
This FREE webinar explores the concept of systemic racism, its insidious nature and impact upon the wellbeing of those who experience it, as well as discussing how and why everyone needs to be comfortable educating themselves on the issue and the action steps that can be taken to move towards an actively anti-racist society.
