As technology brings the peoples of the world closer together and political barriers tumble, racial discrimination, xenophobia and other forms of intolerance continue to ravage our societies. Even globalization and Canadian multiculturalism carries risks that can lead to exclusion and increased inequality, very often along racial and ethnic lines. “isms” – sexism, ageism, anti- Semitism, racism, and so forth – represent one of the most destructive aspects of human social behaviour.
This innovative on-line program is a direct response to the learning needs identified by a broad range of representatives from various human services and justice agencies who recognize that racial inequity and negative stereotyping such as racial profiling is the most significant social problem of our day. The five-course certificate in Race Relations will give the learner measures of prevention and education aimed at the eradication of racism, racial discrimination and related intolerance. Learners will examine diversity issues on a national and international level, critical differences in cross-cultural communication, and sources, causes, forms and contemporary manifestations in this area.
