What does the BIPoC acronym mean?
At UBC, we sometimes use the acronym BIPoC in reference to those who identify as Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour (PoC).
Who are people of colour?
The term “person of color” (people of color, persons of color; POC) is used to encompass all identities of non-white or racialized people, with the intent of emphasizing common experiences of systemic inequities.
