Kathy Hogarth headshotIt is with mixed emotions that we announce Dr. Kathy Hogarth’s departure from Renison and the University of Waterloo, to become Dean of the Lyle S. Hallman Faculty of Social Work at Wilfrid Laurier University.  Kathy has been a respected faculty member, colleague, and instructor in the School of Social Work at Renison since 2011. She has been an asset to Renison, serving on a variety of committees and task forces, where she has shared her vast knowledge and expertise liberally. Most recently, Kathy has been working on secondment as Special Advisor to the Vice President Research and International on Anti- Racism and Inclusivity at the University of Waterloo.

Kathy’s primary areas of research, service and teaching are on critical race, racism and equity in Canada and international contexts. She has published extensively in this area of research, including a recent collaboration with Renison President, Dr. Wendy L. Fletcher titled, A Space for Race: Decoding Racism, Multiculturalism, and Post-Colonialism in the Quest for Belonging in Canada and Beyond.

Kathy has provided service to the institution in many capacities, including serving as the equity lead for the University’s union and chairing the anti-racism taskforce. She has extensive experience in the work of equity, diversity and inclusion and, in addition to her work within the university she also engages the wider community as an equity and race consultant, speaker, and trainer. She is particularly interested in organizational and societal transformation that leads to more equitable and just worlds.

We wish Kathy all the best in her new position at Wilfrid Laurier University, as she continues to positively impact future Social Workers.
