GDPP hosted the annual Anti-Oppression Workshop in collaboration with other SPPG student initiatives on November 17, 2017. This hands-on workshop provided an introduction to anti-oppression principles and how these principles relate to volunteer experiences and policy analysis. The skills developed through this workshop are integral to policy work, especially for those consulting with community groups, facilitating events, interviewing stakeholders and engaging with the larger public policy community. This training was a facilitated workshop by UofT's Equity Office and included interactive sessions.
