Human Rights in Employment Forum Series

Schedule of upcoming forums: Addressing Racial Discrimination in the Workplace

The Alberta Human Rights Act protects employees against discrimination on the basis of race, colour, ancestry, and place of origin in employment. The Addressing Racial Discrimination in the Workplace forum will:
  • Provide an understanding of racial discrimination
  • Inform how employers should respond to complaints of racial discrimination
  • Develop strategies for creating a respectful workplace that is free of racial discrimination

Expert Panel
Melissa Luhtanen, Senior Legal Counsel, Office of the Chief of the Commission and Tribunals, Alberta Human Rights Commission, together with Pamela Dos Ramos, Ph.D. and Brenda Johnson, Human Rights Educators from the Alberta Civil Liberties Research Centre, will discuss ways to address racial discrimination in the workplace.

Who should attend?
Human resource practitioners, business owners, executives, managers, supervisors, and union representatives who would like to gain a better understanding of preventing racial discrimination in the workplace are encouraged to attend. Knowledge of the Alberta Human Rights Act is beneficial, as basic human rights concepts are not covered in this session. For more information, refer to the Commission's webcast on the Alberta Human Rights Act on the E-learning webpage.
