Anti-Black Racism

In July 2020, the Department of Psychiatry & Behavioural Neurosciences commissioned the Anti-Black Racism Task Force to provide leadership to initiate and support activities that increase opportunities for students, administrative staff and faculty who self-identify as Black within the department and the broader McMaster community. The Task Force members will use their influence to promote and champion equity, diversity and inclusion principles within academia, including research, education and clinical work. The Task Force is currently involved in the following initiatives: mentorship of Black, Indigenous, people of colour (BIPOC) students, staff and faculty, supporting educational curriculum updates, expanding research capacity involving Black racialized communities, cultural sensitivity and competency training and recruitment and retention of Black faculty and students.

The Task Force members have put together this reference library as a starting point for education around anti-Black racism topics.
