Join the Women Empowerment Club at York University on February 27th, 2016 for our 4th annual conference: Dismantling Systemic Sexism! The conference will take place from 10AM to 5PM at the HNES Building, York University!
WEC’s 4th Annual Conference, Dismantling Systemic Sexism, will be a full-day conference providing York and non-York students with opportunities to have open discussions about issues that often seem to be non-existent in our society and everyday lives. We hope to have an event around community based social change and inter-sectionality through a diverse collection of workshops in small group settings throughout the day. Delegates can choose their top 3 choices out of the 5 workshops being offered.
Workshop themes and presenters are as follows:
Everyday Sexism – CANVAS
Black Feminism – Black Live Matter TO
Rape Culture – Women’s Support Network of York Region
Trans 101 – Centre for Gender & Sexual Diversity
Islam and Feminism – Outburst!
We hope that our delegates will get a chance to learn more about these sensitive issues and discover an open, safe space to voice their opinions and ideas!
Tickets are $10 for York students and $15 for non-York students. Please drop by WEC’s table in Central Square or Vari Hall from 10AM to 4PM everyday during the week of February 22nd, 2016 to purchase tickets or buy them online at https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/wecs-annual-conference-dismantling-systemic-sexism-tickets-21394515572
