Most, if not all, universities across Canada have articulated their value for and commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI). However, across the university sector, institutions have continued to be challenged to mobilize campus-wide efforts to enact and embody their EDI values and commitments.
Dr. Arig al Shaibah, who self-identifies as a racialized woman administrator, academic, and practitioner, will summarize some of the challenges and opportunities in advancing EDI in the academy, referring to relevant scholarship and augmenting that knowledge with lessons learned from lived experiences and leadership practices.
This lecture is part of the Provost’s Distinguished Lecture Series on Race and Leadership, and will be hosted by Dr. Andrew Szeri, Provost and Vice-President Academic, and moderated by Dr. Minelle Mahtani, Senior Advisor to the Provost on Racialized Faculty.
