Name of creator
Dr. Joan Anderson joined the UBC School of Nursing faculty in 1976 and remained on the faculty until her retirement in 2006 when she was named professor emerita. In 1992 she was appointed Director of the Multicultural Liaison Office at UBC, a position which she held until the following year when the functions of the Office were subsumed under the Associate Vice-President, Equity. The Office organized several events for faculty, staff, and students during that time, including two workshops entitled “Racism: Breaking the Silence.” The workshops had the full support of then-President David Strangway, Vice-President Academic and Provost Daniel Birch, and many deans and department heads. The Multicultural Liaison Office should be noted as one of the forerunners of UBC’s current equity, diversity, and inclusion programmes.
Scope and content
Fonds consists of documentation of the “Racism: Breaking the Silence” workshops, organized by the UBC Multicultural Liaison Office and its Director, Dr. Joan Anderson. Included are recommendations arising from the first workshop (March 1993), President Strangway’s keynote address at the second workshop (June 1993) and Dr. Anderson’s response.
