The Saskatchewan Human Rights Commission continues its online Courageous Conversation speaker series on Thursday, January 27, 2022, at 10:00 AM.

The speaker is Christine Lwanga PhD. Her Courageous Conversation Addressing and Overcoming Systemic Racismfocuses on collaboration and finding solutions through a multi-disciplinary human rights values practice theory.

Dr. Lwanga graduated from University of Manitoba in October 2016. She briefly taught at the University of Regina during 2017 and at the University of Manitoba during 2018. Most of her post-doctoral work is focused on research, policy, and holistic development among African-descent and other marginalized communities in Western Canada.

In 2020-2021, Dr. Lwanga facilitated a series of virtual symposiums addressing institutional and systemic racism in recognition of the 5th year of the UN’s International Decade for People of African Descent (2015-2014).

The third and final symposium of the series – Recognizing and Overcoming Systemic Racism: Advancing Health, Social and Economic Justice Together –   contributed to the development of a multi-disciplinary practice theory, which is  part of her current research, innovation, and development work.
