DEI: The Good, the Bad and the Performative – postponed
GSWS Annual Lecture event, “DEI: THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE PERFORMATIVE” scheduled for Thursday, February 29, 2024 will be postponed due to the current CUPE 3903 strike. We are planning to reschedule this event following the strike.
The School of Gender, Sexuality and Women’s Studies invites you to join our Annual Lecture event featuring a roundtable on the possibilities and limitations of institutionalized Diversity, Equity and Inclusion initiatives. The roundtable will explore various fields such as higher education, broadcasting, news organizations and politics and the ways in which racialized and other marginalized people with progressive politics are initially welcomed in spaces of power, becoming symbols (or tokens) of progress in achieving “diversity and inclusion,” only to then be gaslighted, vilified or face reprisals for espousing their views.
DEI: The Good, The Bad & The Performative will be moderated and hosted by Dr. Bianca Beauchemin and Dr. Nadia Hasan, Assistant Professors from the School of Gender, Sexuality and Women’s Studies at York University.
