The School of Gender, Sexuality and Women’s Studies invites you to join our Annual Lecture event featuring a roundtable on the possibilities and limitations of institutionalized Diversity, Equity and Inclusion initiatives. The roundtable will explore various fields such as higher education, broadcasting, news organizations and politics and the ways in which racialized and other marginalized people with progressive politics are initially welcomed in spaces of power, becoming symbols (or tokens) of progress in achieving “diversity and inclusion,” only to then be gaslighted, vilified or face reprisals for espousing their views.

Featured speakers:

  • Ginella Massa, Broadcast journalist and media consultant
  • Desmond Cole, Journalist, activist and author of The Skin We’re In
  • Dr. Nadiya Ali, Assistant Professor of Sociology, Trent University
  • Somar Abuaziza, President of the Palestine Solidarity Collective (PSC)

The event will be moderated and hosted by Dr. Bianca Beauchemin and Dr. Nadia Hasan, Assistant Professors from the School of Gender, Sexuality and Women’s Studies at York University.

The roundtable will be followed by a reception with refreshments.

Space is limited. Please register for the event at the following link:
