An Afternoon with Dr. Christy Bressette
Western University's Anti-Racism Webinar Series and the Western Equity Census Working Group are very pleased to present Dr. Christy Bressette, Western's inaugural Vice Provost & Associate Vice-President of Indigenous Initiatives.

An Afternoon with Dr. Christy Bressette
Our host will be Dr. Opiyo Oloya, Western's Associate Vice-President of EDI
Wednesday, 20 October 2021, 1PM

As part of our commitment to advance the conversation on promising practices of equity, diversity, inclusion, and decolonization (EDI-D), Western’s Anti-Racism Webinar Series will welcome a national leader in Indigenous education, Dr. Christy Bressette, who will talk about her vision for advancing Indigenous initiatives at Western and in the Canadian higher education system. Drawing upon her own lived experience and knowledge as an educator, Dr. Bressette will address the value and importance of creating Indigenous-centred spaces on campus and enhancing education outcomes for learners in the areas of policy, curriculum, and governance.

Dr. Bressette's talk will coincide with the launch of the Western Equity Census, a voluntary campus-wide survey that aims to collect data that can be used to help understand the demographics of the university and to enhance the diversity and equity of the community. Dr. Bressette will also address how the Census provides the university a means of measuring the effectiveness of EDI-D strategies and to close the gap between policies and practice.

Oct 20, 2021 01:00 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
