Grad Talk: Creating an Inclusive Environment

In this workshop we think about inclusion as a verb, as a key action in doing equity work. We take time to think about what exclusion and inclusion are and how they affect students. We explore some of the different ways exclusion takes place for students and we brainstorm practical strategies specifically for graduate students to create more inclusive environments in their communities and in their work. Pizza will be available. Presented by Mairi McKenna Edwards, Student and Campus Community Development.

Grad Talk: Dealing with Awkward Conversations during your Grad Program

Grad school can be full of awkward moments and missed opportunities. Ever walked away from a conversation wondering, "What just happened?" Ever seen a faculty member outside of class or the lab and walked past them while staring at the ground? Ever attended a department event and asked yourself, “What am I doing here?” Join G2G Peer Advisors from the Graduate Conflict Resolution Centre(CRC) for a frank discussion about conflicting expectations, awkward conversations, and the blurry boundary between social life and professional life. Pizza will be available.
