slide 1:

The Intersection of Racial Justice and LD Its been an honour to see how our Instructional Designers in Offices Drinking Coffee IDIODC video- and podcast have grown into a community over the past two years. Every week dozens of people join us for a discussion on important topics for our industry and for us as practitioners. And every week we try to focus on conversations that can help all of us be better in our work. For last weeks episode June 10 2020 we did something different to focus on the critical importance of coming to grips with racism and how it manifests itself in the learning and development world. The horrific murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis on May 25 once again showed that even if we dont think we as individuals are racist so much of our world is structured unfairly against black and indigenous people. As much as we believe that people in LD are caring our industry is a reflection of society as a whole.

So last week on the video-cast Jessica Jackson Myra Roldan and Nyla Spooner led us through a discussion on The Intersection of Racial Justice and LD. Thank you Jessica Myra and Nyla for trusting us and the IDIODC community enough to hold this conversation. It was a powerful session. Heres the recording. A lot of additional work was happening in the sessions chat where the community shared links to almost two dozen resources. Weve gathered up those resources below. Whats Next This cant be a one-off event. So what are we going to do to move forward From an IDIDOC perspective were adding additional goals to our planning process for inviting and including guests. We already have a policy to ensure our guest list has a 50-50 gender balance. Were adding to that policy to ensure higher representation of black indigenous and people of colour BIPOC guests.

To be clear this isnt just to speak about racism as a topic its about any topic that is important for LD. Spend some time looking at the speaker lists for just about any conference in our industry youll see a low level of BIPOC representation. We can help change that by providing more opportunities for representation. And wed love to hear from BIPOC LD practitioners who have expertise to share with the community. Maybe youve got some lessons learned from a recent project. Maybe you researched a critical topic for your graduate degree. Maybe youve been thinking of submitting a topic proposal to conferences. Let us know - wed love to connect. You can email us at IDIODC at dominknow dot com. From an individual perspective the resources shared in the sessions chat form a pretty solid curriculum for personal learning as well as for beginning to change how we act in the world. If youve read this far please think about taking one more step and looking into some of these resources. We are after all the learning and development industry and we always have room to learn more and to develop new understandings and behaviors.
