REDI Workshop Series

The REDI workshops by REI are a series of interactive and instructor-led training sessions led by the REI Education team. A number of our sessions are conducted in partnership with the Division on People, Equity, and Culture, the Teaching Commons, Student Community & Leadership Development (SCLD), Student Accessibility Services (SAS), and Talent Acquisitions and Development (TAD). REDI workshops focus on various themes and topics covering human rights, equity, diversity, and inclusion and are open to all Faculty, Staff, and Students at York.

Registration/Cancellation

Unless otherwise indicated, registration for all REDI instructor-led courses on YU Learn will be available up to two hours before the start of the scheduled session. Likewise, you may withdraw from a course at any time after registration and at least two hours before the session begins.

Email Confirmation, Zoom links, and Passcode

Once you register for a session, you will receive an email notification confirming your registration. The email will also include our contact information in case you have questions and accommodation requests prior to the session.

Two days before the scheduled session, you will receive another email with the Zoom link and passcode for the session.

Participants who attended the session will receive a post-session email with an evaluation survey link, the workshop handout, as well other relevant resources on the topic.

Duration/Format

The sessions run for 1.5 hours and will be interactive. If you have any accommodation requests, please send us an email at: chrwkshp@yorku.ca.

Course Codes

All workshops offered by the Centre for Human Rights, Equity & Inclusion have course codes beginning with "CHR" on YU Learn.

Additional letters like AC (for accommodations), AR (Anti-Racism), and SG (Gender and Sexuality) indicate the theme of the sub-series. For registration purposes, some, but not all PR (Praxis, skills focus) courses require the completion of a pre-requisite course. Make sure to read the description before signing up for these courses.

Earning a REDI Certificate

By attending a minimum of any of our three REDI sessions and completing the pre-requisite self-paced REDI Tutorial course (Course Code: CHREDI), which is also on YU Learn, participants can earn a REDI Certificate of Completion.

Note that certificates will only be granted to participants who actually attend each session for a minimum of 60 minutes.

The majority of the REDI workshops are stand-alone sessions, but a few of our workshops have a recommended second part, and/or an accompanying practical workshop. Thanks to YU Learn, every session that a faculty and staff participant attends will now be recorded and reflected automatically on employee records. (Exceptions apply. See Privacy features below) Note, however, that there will be a transition period that applies to attendance and completion records prior to the migration of REDI to YU Learn.

During the transition period, we will be syncing past attendance records and REDI certificate completion records into the system. This means that those who attended REDI workshops before the move to YU Learn may be affected by some delays. Note that while your attendance/REDI completion may yet be reflected on your employment records, your REDI certificate will still be the best record of your attendance/completion of the REDI Workshop Series.

Your Privacy on YU Learn

Sometimes, participants who attend our workshops do so in order to get more information intended to help them deal with a particular situation at work or in school. In such cases, earning the REDI certificate or getting credit may not be the priority, nor is it the preference.

YU Learn offers a privacy feature where participants can turn on privacy settings so that their registration and attendance in a workshop are not visible to their Manager and/or Supervisor. This registration will only be visible to us, the session facilitators, and course creators.

Note, however, that unless a course or session has been categorized as private, this feature will not be available.

Only approved courses of a sensitive nature may offer privacy. Generally, training conducted during regular office hours (not including breaks) requires the approval of the manager or supervisor.

Likewise, job-required training such as the REDI Tutorial (required for onboarding) and Respect in the Workplace for Academic Administrators, will not have this privacy feature enabled.

Remember that if you have pressing human rights concerns, you may also book a confidential one-on-one consultation with our Case Advisors.

More about Private Courses

Courses categorized as private will allow an option for the user to keep them “private” when they register. This means that a participant can choose whether or not to make their participation visible to their management team.

If you choose to keep your participation in a course private:

•No notifications go to your manager

•Your management team cannot see the course on your learning history

•You can see the course on your YU Learn learning history page, marked with a Private icon to show that other people can’t see it

•The course doesn’t appear on your official University training record.

If you choose to share your participation, a notification goes to your manager and the course is visible to your management team on your learning history. When complete it’s added to your official University training record.
