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.

  • 12:30 PM - 12:50 PM Reflections on Ruth and Esther

    Join us for our weekday Contemplative Pause series.  

    For 12 weeks, we will read through the two books of the Hebrew Bible that are named for women, Ruth and Esther, reflecting on these characters and their stories. This is not a Bible study or exegetical exercise; rather it is contemplation of what we hear in these stories.

    Presented by Mona Tokarek LaFosse, assistant professor at Luther.

  • 2:30 PM - 3:30 PM Roommate Communication and Conflict Resolution (Ride the Wave)

    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.
