Topic: Boys on Boxes: A new look at a familiar picture.
Facilitator: Kike Ojo, Kojo Koncepts Consulting Group (Canada)
Most of us have seen the picture of boys on boxes watching a baseball game. It has been circulated on social media and used by trainers as a way to help people understand the difference between equality and equity. But this picture can take individuals to a much deeper understanding of the need for systemic change. In this webinar, Kike Ojo will use this familiar picture to make the case for an anti-racism / anti-oppression approach to getting to equity.
