  • 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM Laurier Milton Lecture Series: Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) in Schools & Communities

    Wilfrid Laurier University, the Town of Milton and the Milton Public Library are pleased to present the 2020-2021 Laurier Milton Lecture Series.

    Wilfrid Laurier has long supported the public role of academics to bring their knowledge and thinking outside of the classroom. The Laurier Milton Lecture Series provides a wonderful opportunity to engage in a public dialogue with citizens of Milton on a broad array of important topics. We are pleased that the presentations represent the current research and analysis of members of different faculties, departments and programs. 

    Lectures take place the second Wednesday of each month starting September 2020 and until May 2021 from 7- 8 pm. Lectures will take place via Zoom. Registration required and is free. Please register at beinspired.ca/lmls

    September 9th lecture will discuss Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) in Schools & Communities: Inequality of Opportunity & the Achievement Gap presented by Dr. Ardavan Eizadirad, Assistant Professor, Faculty of Education.

    Dr. Eizadirad will discuss the importance of centering Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) in schools and communities to create better supporting environments that reflect the needs of vulnerable students and community members. The goal is to advance the dialogue beyond critique to discussing action-oriented alternative approaches to mitigate systemic barriers perpetuated through inequality of opportunity. A case study of a community organization will be presented that works to close the achievement gap by providing programs and services that minimize the opportunity gap.

    Dr. Ardavan Eizadirad is currently an Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Education at Wilfrid Laurier University and an instructor in School of Early Childhood Studies at Ryerson University and in the Master of Teaching program at OISE, University of Toronto. He is also an educator with the Toronto District School Board and author of Decolonizing Educational Assessment: Ontario Elementary Students and the EQAO.

  • 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM The Fight for History Book Launch

    The Laurier Centre for Military Strategic and Disarmament Studies is excited to announce its first ever Laurier Military History Webinar Series via Zoom! Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, in-person lectures have been postponed indefinitely, but we have been providing a platform for the newest scholarship in the study of war and society in history for over twenty-five years and will continue to do so––albeit in a different way.

    In our first event, historian and best-selling author Tim Cook will explore how the Second World War has been remembered, forgotten and remade by Canadians for 75 years. While the Great War became a touchstone, the legacy of the Second World War has been a more complicated struggle in Canada’s collective memory, coming to terms with battles won and lost, Canadians’ relationship to veterans, and how the post-war period created profound shifts in the country.

    Registration.

  • 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM Demystifying Beer Webinar with Laurier Alumni

    Have you ever looked at the beer menu at a restaurant, and wondered what language it was written in? ABV, IBU, IPA…what’s with all the acronyms? As the number of craft breweries in Ontario has exploded over the past decade, so too has the selection offered to customers in stores and restaurants. The purpose of this webinar is to teach participants to decipher the beer menu at a bar or restaurant and learn to appreciate the origin and characteristics of a variety of traditional and seasonal beer styles. We will discuss the ingredients common to all beers, and the distinctions between beer styles to help you identify your own beer preferences.

    Although the webinar will be conducted in an online format, it will be experiential; you will have the option* to purchase the beer styles discussed in the webinar in advance so that you can sample as you learn!

    This session will be lead by Laurier alumna Sally Heath (BA '02). She has taught in the Canadian Studies and North American Studies programs at Laurier since 2003, as well as Laurier's Lifelong Learning 'The History of Beer' course. She is a passionate consumer of craft beer and is currently working toward her Cicerone designation.

    *An optional beer shopping list will be shared with registrants in advance of the webinar.

    8:00 AM - 9:30 AM Black Women in Leadership Panel

    Throughout their careers, Black women negotiate unique experiences based on the intersections of gender and race. Many institutional spaces problematize Black women's identities and labour, and this systemic and interpersonal harm can have a profound impact, including causing a ripple effect on their long-term success. For example, COCO states that survey results shared that "within the last three years, ~30% of racialized survey respondents said they had left a job due to an unwelcoming racial environment" (COCO).

    Black women are not a monolith, and therefore there are many ways they identify, work and respond to inequality throughout their careers. During this workshop, panellists will share experiential knowledge and research about the diverse experiences of Black women, including how they engage in resistance within their leadership, empower other racialized women, and take accountability for the roles they play within the broader community.

    This panel discussion will be moderated by: Lauren Burrows, MA ‘14, Centre for Student Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion, Wilfrid Laurier University.

    Meet the Panel:

    • Amaryllis Jones, BBA ‘14, MBA ‘20, Trade Marketing Manager, Procter and Gamble

    Back again for another session, Heather will address the common disputes and communication issues that can arise between roommates, especially when access to other social contact and activities outside the house are severely limited.  This workshop will pay particular attention to the fact that at this unusual time, our roommates may be our parents, siblings, or other immediate family members whom we did not expect to be living with under such challenging circumstances.

    At their best, university chapels are experimental spaces, places where people sift through narrative and poetry, music and ritual, history and practice to create from new combinations of old things something that is alive in the present. They offer a place to put the specialized knowledge of the university into conversation with larger human concerns; to consider the wisdom of religious thought and practice as part of our human inheritance; and to ask what we might learn through prayer, faith, and service.  Stephanie Paulsell, "When the chapel is the most open place on campus" in Christian Century, October 4, 2019.

    11:30 AM - 12:30 PM Inspiring Conversation: New Year's Take 2 -How to find motivation when the future is uncertain

    This September is a chance for a fresh start to 2020. Students are returning to school. Parents are catching their breath. More businesses are opening and people are learning a new routine of life. A lifestyle shift heralds a chance to not fall behind on school readings and to do lists, go to the gym, and figure out how to get involved in physically distanced new ways. Big goals based on daily habits. Join Dr. Kim Dawson and Dr. Anne Wilson to discuss how to maintain the motivation to engage in daily habits, such as physical activity, which can increase long term happiness. Check-in with your goals as well as to determine the best ways to achieve them!

    Registration.

    Kim Dawson, professor of Kinesiology and Physical Education, is an expert on sport psychology and performance. She has worked with athletes of all types, including Olympic athletes, to prepare them for top performance under pressure. Kim will be addressing ways in which non-athletes can maintain motivation to stay healthy and reach their fitness goals.

    Anne Wilson, is a professor in the Department of Psychology. Her research focuses on how self and identity changes over time, how people reconstruct their past and envision the future, and how this affects present identity, well-being, and decisions. She has studied goal pursuit and motivation, and how it is shaped by people's beliefs about the future and what will bring them happiness.  Anne will be discussing the importance of small daily behaviours (vs. major events) in long-term happiness and well-being.
