Equity talk to focus on racism and resistance in higher education

Brock’s Equity in Post-Secondary Speakers Series continues this week with Tales of a Transnational Woman of Colour: Race, Racism and Resistance in Higher Education.

Held Friday, March 16, the lecture will be delivered by Anushay Irfan Khan, an educator and activist who is currently the international and intercultural student development co-ordinator at the University of Toronto Mississauga.

Khan actively centres anti-oppressive, anti-racist, feminist and Indigenous perspectives in higher education and within student life. As an immigrant woman of colour, she is passionate about challenging the status quo and working with an anti-oppressive and equitable framework to create accessible pathways to post-secondary education for historically marginalized and underrepresented communities.

Her presentation takes place from 1 to 3 p.m. in Room 207 of Brock’s International Centre.

The Equity in Post-Secondary Speakers Series runs throughout March and features guest lecturers who inspire solutions to prioritize inclusion on university campuses.

All events are free and open to the public.
