STOPAIDS is undertaking a strategic evaluation and renewal process that will result in the implementation of a new five-year plan (2021 -2025). STOPAIDS aims to establish an anti-oppression structure as a core part of our new strategy that drives its implementation, in light of the ‘build back better’ initiative and the growing momentum of the anti-racism campaign, which has particular significance for the construction sector. The anti-oppression system would be made up of a collection of values, procedures, and policies that would be enforced in the organization. These will ensure that in defining (1) the areas we work on, (2) what we advocate for within those areas, and (3) how we do that work, we are constantly questioning systems and behaviors that cause and perpetuate inequality and pressing for new approaches and models of power, finance, and knowledge management that prioritize justice and empowerment.
This framework will be focused on critical theory to promote continuous self-reflective evaluation of our work and organizational identity in order to expose power structures and processes, name them, deconstruct them, and co-create alternatives. We hope that by doing so, we will be able to draw on a strong historical study of inequality as well as mainstream lenses of race, gender identity, sexual identity, class, religion, physical and mental capacity, and intersectionality in our work and how we do it. We want to create an honest profile of our position and value-add as an NGO working in a high-income country to ensure that everyone’s right to health can be realized on this basis. We assume that this can only be accomplished in the long run if the path toward this aim is driven by the same ideals as the goal itself – justice and empowerment. As a result, we believe it is important to work in close collaboration with the most marginalized members of our global society, ensuring that our work is driven by their goals and strategies, as well as our shared values.

This toolkit is for everyone who believes there is a lack of constructive discussion on issues of diversity and the role of identity in social relationships, both at the micro (individual) and macro (communal) levels. Perhaps you work with an underserved community as an instructor, youth group facilitator, student relations staff, or as part of a management team. This type of training can help create greater self-awareness or provide historical background about the politics of identity and the complexities of power and privilege.
The activities below are designed for groups of 10 to 60 participants.
Larger groups may be split into several sessions with additional facilitators to ensure that the discussions and events stay on track. The diversity toolkit outlined here can be used as a starting point, and it can be tweaked to suit your group’s specific needs.
A word about the moderators: The facilitators should have a clear understanding of the subjects and themes we’ll be exploring, but they don’t have to be experts. This workshop is designed as a popular education practice in which the majority of the results are derived from the participants’ own experiences and skills rather than from a teacher-student relationship.

Intersectionality is a theoretical framework for analyzing how different facets of a person’s social and political roles interact to produce various forms of prejudice and privilege. Gender, caste, sex, race, class, sexuality, religion, disability, physical appearance,[1][2] and height are examples of these influences. [three] Multiple factors of benefit and disadvantage are defined by intersectionality. [4] These conflicting and intersecting social identities have the potential to be both inspiring and oppressive. (5) [number six] For example, a black woman may face discrimination from a company that isn’t strictly based on her race (because the company doesn’t discriminate against black men) or her gender (because the company doesn’t discriminate against white women), but a combination of the two.
Intersectionality broadens the scope of feminism’s first and second waves, which mostly centered on the perspectives of white, middle-class women, to include the diverse experiences of women of color, poor women, immigrants, and other classes. Intersectional feminism attempts to differentiate itself from white feminism by considering the diversity of women’s backgrounds and identities. [nine]

Pedagogy of the oppressed chapter 1 – part 1

The Canadian Council for Refugees is a non-profit umbrella organization dedicated to the rights and security of refugees in Canada and around the world, as well as their integration into Canadian society. Organizations involved in the settlement, sponsorship, and defense of refugees and immigrants make up the membership. The Council addresses the needs of its members in terms of networking, knowledge sharing, and advocacy.
We agree that these types of differential power have had an especially negative effect on Canada’s Aboriginal community. We also accept that the CCR represents the society in which we live, and that these types of influence exist within it.
Individuals may have control in one or more respects, according to the CCR, even though they are oppressed in another or more, combined ways. Someone who is oppressed because of their race, for example, may have some privilege and power as a result of their gender.
