Why does Equity, Diversity and Inclusion, and Anti-racist work matter in the post-secondary context?
There continues to be a growing debate and polarizing views about the impact of EDI within institutions.

This session will be facilitated by Martha Mathurin-Moe, ULethbridge Vice-Provost EDI, with guest speakers Jermaine Marshall of Queens University and Everett Igobwa of the University of Alberta.
