Event description
Panel moderated by Indira Naidoo-Harris, AVP Diversity and Human Rights on how to nurture personal and professional communities in academia

About this Event

The Live Work Well Research Centre is hosting a panel on strategies and challenges of working and living through commitments for building communities and social justice.

The panel, moderated by AVP of Diversity and Human Rights Ms. Indira Naidoo-Harris, will foster discussions around the tensions and solutions that emerge from negotiating the demands of academia and nurturing personal and professional relationships and communities. We also wish to explore issues related to the additional expectations and invisible labour put on certain faculty, such as women, people of color, and Indigenous people, that may reproduce or challenge dominant relations of power in academia.

We will highlight diversity of experiences in academia by bringing together PhD students, emergent, mid-career, and senior faculty members, as well as a senior administrator who will respond.

Our panelists are:

• Anna Johnson, Ph.D Candidate, Department of Sociology and Anthropology

• Carmen Ho, Assistant Professor, Department of Political Science

• Deborah Stienstra, Professor, Department of Political Science

• Gwen Chapman, Dean of the College of Applied and Social Human Sciences

• Leah Levac, Associate Professor, Department of Political Science

Light food and refreshments will be offered. The event is free to attend.
