Ryerson University To Host ‘White Privilege Conference’ Following Cancellation Of Free Speech Event
Canada’s Ryerson University, which canceled a panel on free speech by psychology professor Jordan Peterson following complaints from social justice activists, is slated to host “The White Privilege Conference.”
The university announced this week that it plans to host the conference on May 9 to 12, inviting academics to participate in discussions revolving around “white privilege and oppression in Canada (and beyond),” according to the event page.
“Each day of the conference features keynote presentations from inspiring leading experts as well as a series of workshops, presentations and plenary sessions for you to choose from,” the university states. “We give you the tools to examine challenging concepts of privilege and oppression and offer solutions and team building strategies to work toward a more equitable world.”
Among the conference speakers invited to provide lectures is Rinaldo Walcott, an associate professor at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education and the director of Women and Gender Studies Institute.
