The Lassonde School of Engineering is pleased to announce today a new project that is going to take actions to end violence and aggressions toward women and marginalized people.
It is called the #MYActionsMatter Project.
The project will address two challenges:
- What is micro-aggressive behaviour and what can you do to stop it?
- How can all people be allies to marginalized, racialized and underrepresented people including women in STEM
Students will be given a chance to sign-up to design and facilitate a 1.5 hour workshop on each challenge, in an exciting, engaging and interactive way, building knowledge on these two very complicated topics.
Students will be given a team of advisors to work with consisting of professors, senior administrators and corporate partners. PricewaterhouseCoopers will be the lead partner.
Students can sign-up for this opportunity here in the month of December and will start at work through January and February to deliver these 2 workshops at the Lassonde School on March 8, 2018, International Women’s Day.
