POSTPONED: Waitaha - Learning to stop inst. racism in our schools


Formed in 2013, STIR (Stop Institutional Racism) is a network of public health professionals and scholars committed to ending institutional racism within the administration of the public health sector. The team of Māori and non-Māori trainers who will work in pairs all have lived experiences of racism and/or a background in anti-racism work for many going back decades. They are a mixture of academics, practitioners, people-leaders, community workers teachers, health professionals and trainers who all share a passion for disrupting racism. Dr Heather Came-Friar will be leading developing the curriculum based on her extensive research into racism and anti-racism and significant body of other anti-racism training work with DHBs, local government and civil society. Francis, Alex, Ngaire and Isla are all currently completing PhDs in this broad area.

NOTE: Principals are asked to go to their nearest workshop, so that as many as possible drive, not fly. This will also encourage networking in your local area/rohe. One night’s accommodation will be paid for, as will all catering. Relief costs will not be paid as this does not fit within the budget for these events. If this will be a barrier to any principal wanting to attend (eg in a smaller school) please contact:
Kate Drury
