About this event

This year, seven speakers from various disciplines will share what brought them to academia, some of the challenges they have faced, and how they have carved a space for themselves and others in their fields. By creating space for balanced representation and illuminating diverse lived realities in academic contexts, we might all be empowered to reflect on and share our own journeys, and lift each other up in the process.

Lectures take place on Mondays at 12pm EST.

Featured speakers include:

September 28 - Dr. Ayca Tomac, Global Development Studies

October 19 - Dr. Audrey Kobayashi, Geography

November 30 - Dr. Jennifer Davis, Education

January 25 - Dr. Jacqueline Davies, Philosophy & Cultural Studies

(CANCELLED) February 22 - Dr. Reena Kukreja, Global Development Studies

March 15 - Dr. Yolande Bouka, Political Studies

March 29 - Dr. Grace Adeniyi-Ogunyankin, Geography
