The Centre for Employment Relations, Innovation and Change (CERIC), is hosting a seminar on migrants, workplace and community: exploring the intersections of race, class and gender and marginalized identities.

This free seminar will focus on how identity and oppression mobilise people to act, more specifically, how these different forms of oppression intersect such that individuals are able to come together to act for the common good.
