Join us for a dialogue exchange on exploring mutual advocacy for a brighter Engineering community

Let’s create safe space to discuss stigma we experience and how we can enable mutual advocacy through our shared wisdom. Join us for a dialogue exchange. Here we will collaboratively engage in a sharing circle modeled from indigenous practices and guided by a trained facilitator. Come hold some space with us. Space is limited! Light refreshments provided. All Engineering Graduate Students welcome.
