Keynote panel
Dr. Kim Clark, Dr. Aruna Srivastava and Dr. Sonia Aujla-Bhullar
Presented by The Office of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

The three panellists will be presenting their understanding of solidarity in action and how to think through intersectional lenses towards action and allyship and how to take concrete steps and measures toward change (Equity in action).

Dr. Clark, Assistant Dean in Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Decolonization in the Faculty of Social Science at Western University, will share the recent research she has led with the students on accessibility and experiences with barriers on campus and what solutions are necessary to think about. These great ways of thinking about accessibility on campus are essential to creating an inclusive, accessible and welcoming campus for students.

Dr. Srivastava, Associate Dean of Arts in Pluralism and Inclusion, will be discussing their extensive research over the years and contributions on campus in Equity, Diversity and Inclusion and ways of thinking collaboratively and through solidarity across the various equity-deserving groups based on lessons learned over the years of work on campus.

Dr. Aujla-Bhullar will discuss solidarity and what it means in her work through an intersectional lens, highlighting working with the community and within the UCalgary community to advance EDI initiatives. She is an active community member as a board member of the World Sikh Organization (WSO) and Co-Chair of the City of Calgary’s Anti-Racism Action Committee (ARAC).
