How to be a Better Ally in Research and Study
September 16 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Building a Respectful Community: Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in the workplace
In this session, participants will learn what it takes to build a respectful and inclusive community by focusing on practices and policies that centre equity and diversity. Beginning with a discussion of the terms equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI), the group will explore how EDI matters in the work and research spaces at UBC. This is followed by an examination of bias and microaggressions, how they manifest and what we can do about them.
Led by Rachael Sullivan from the Equity and Inclusion office at UBC and taking place September 16th from 10am-12pm, this session will draw from a variety of perspectives and utilize interactive learning to help build skills to bring into the research and workplace.
Rachael lives, learns and works on the traditional, ancestral and unceded territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), səl̓ílwətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) and Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) People, as a settler. Rachael joined the Equity and Inclusion Office (EIO) in 2014 after completing her doctorate in the Department of Sociology (2005-2012). Since then, Rachael has worked with a variety of students, staff and faculty member of UBC to raise awareness and implement practices and processes that embed equity and inclusion to better support the diversity of the campus community. One such project is the launching of the Beyond the Binary @ UBC video. Currently, Rachael is working closely with the Office of the VP of Research and Innovation, co-leading the UBC Inclusive Washroom Consultation, and supporting the engagement with conflict through Conflict Theatre @ UBC.
