Bridging Black: Building Connections for Black Flourishing

May 9 - May 10

Bridging Black: Event Promo

On May 9 and 10, 2024, the University of Waterloo and Wilfrid Laurier University will be hosting the Inter-Institutional Forum of the Scarborough National Charter on Anti-Black Racism and Black Inclusion in Canadian Higher Education.

For the 2024 Scarborough Charter Inter-Institutional Forum, we have chosen the theme – Bridging Black. Our intention is to bridge the gaps in both learning and action and to build better connections between the different stakeholders at higher education institutions – senior administration, faculty, staff, students, and neighbouring Black communities.

Programming of the forum is built to prioritize, share, and legitimize the experiences and knowledges of Black people participating in the institution as well as the knowledges that have historically contributed to the flourishing of the academy. We hope that by providing the room for intentional idea exchange around the principles of the Scarborough Charter, leaders and participants can leave with more tools and reinvigorated spirits to follow through on redressing anti-Blackness in higher education.
