Race Racialization and Racism

In response to ongoing conversations on campus around intersectional forms of racism, and barriers to inclusion faced by diverse groups of people of colour, Indigenous, Métis, First Nations and Inuit communities, PACBIC formed an Anti-Racism Working Group in March 2015.

This working group objectives are to:

  • work with McMaster’s diverse communities of colour, Indigenous, First Nations, Métis and Inuit (FNMI) communities to identify and address issues affecting these communities both within the University, and in the broader McMaster community.  
  • provide subject matter expertise on issues related to racism and anti-racism, as well as increase awareness about the differential impact of racism on diverse communities.
  • provide advice to PACBIC on the planning and development of policies, and programs related to anti-racism.  The working group will develop concrete anti-racism strategies using an intersectional lens focused on "building an inclusive community with a shared purpose", within the University, and the broader McMaster and Hamilton communities.
