About the Diversity Training for Students

The Academic Success Centre provides diversity training to students at Red River College to support the development of their intercultural competence and enhance their understanding and respect for gender and sexual diversity.

Gender and Sexual Diversity Training

Gender and sexual diversity workshops are also available to support students in understanding the complexity of the gender and sexual diversity spectrum and develop inclusive strategies for respectful and affirming communication. This training series include:

  • Module 1 - Understanding Gender and Sexual Diversity
  • Module 2 - Uncovering Assumptions and Barriers

Anti-Racism Training (Coming Soon!)

When we think and talk about racism, most people reference examples of interactions between people. But racism is also maintained by institutions and society through the implementation of policies, practices, and programs.

This training does go over historical instances of racism but also focuses on what's happening now. Anti-Racism aims to carry the dark side of history, learn from it, in order to remain mindful to do better, to listen to those voices, and help effect true change and authentic diversity, equity and inclusion. It is the goal of this training to contribute to our educational efforts in:

  • Acknowledging how racism has shaped our thinking and actions
  • Enhancing our knowledge
  • Speaking out against racism and systemic barriers
