A Conversation Among Black PTs in Canada and the UK: June 26

On Friday, June 26, Black PTs and PT students from across Canada and the UK will meet for a virtual conversation. 

What: This is an invitation to a virtual dialogue to connect Black PTs and PT students from across Canada and the UK.

Who: This dialogue is for Black PTs and Black physiotherapy students in Canada and the UK. Other virtual opportunities may be organized in the future for allies interested in dismantling anti-Black racism, but this first meeting is only for Black PTs and PT students.

Why: The goal of the conversation is threefold:

  1. To build community and connection among Black PTs
  2. To make space for discussion about racism in the context of these difficult days, in a way that centres the lived experience of Black PTs and Black PT students
  3. To consider development of a future webinar (or series!) sharing stories and lived experiences of Black PTs as a step toward a more inclusive profession and world

When: Friday, June 26, 2020 from noon to 1 p.m.
