    What's race got to do with it? is an introductory presentation to race and racism in organisations such as education. The presentation defines and examines the terminology, delineates different forms of racism, providing definitions and developing audience knowledge and understanding about how to be a good ally.

    The session looks at the representation of people of colour within organisations and explains why representation is only but one step to developing equity. The presentation broadly covers theory, research and recurring themes related to race and racism within different organisations and actions which can be taken to transform organisational practices to counter racism. The presentation encourages personal and institutional reflection. “It is about thinking outside the box and not just ticking a box. Equality is always work in progress” (Vini Lander).

    In preparation for the session please watch this YouTube clip the Doll Test and read the paper entitled ‘The Invisible Knapsack’
