Intersectionality, Anti-Oppression and Collaborative Leadership in Practice Learning Institute

The Learning Institute comprised three plenary sessions, a panel discussion and three break-out training sessions over the course of a two-day intensive.

Attendees were assigned to a small group, or learning cohort, of 15-20 participants and attended break-out training sessions together. Some of these training sessions were bilingual.

All participants were brought back together for the panel and plenary sessions.  

Each session examined how specific topics relate to collaborative leadership from an anti-oppression framework.

Specifically, each learning session addressed the following:

  1. How does the topic area relate to Intersectionality and Anti-Oppression?
  2. How does this relate to Health Equity and collaborative leadership in the non for profit sector?
  3. Utilizing or creating examples specific to your topic area, what does anti-oppression collaborative leadership look like? What can it look like?
