Women's Studies Alumni Panel

WS Alum Panel

On January 24, the Women's Studies Program hosted an Alumni Career Panel. Seven alums, with graduation dates between 1995 and 2016, spoke with students and faculty about the value of their Women's Studies degrees for their professional and personal lives. Indeed, while this event was designed to provide students some insight into how to translate and market social justice education for the workplace, many of the alums spoke about how their educations have benefitted their lives holistically--at home, in community work, interpersonally, and professionally.

Dr. Karen Stote talk

An Act of Genocide book cover

Dr. Karen Stote, who teaches in the Women’s and Gender Studies Department at Laurier University, gave a talk entitled “Colonialism and the Sterilization of Indigenous Women in Canada.” Dr. Stote’s archival research has helped bring to attention the extent to which indigenous women in the North were subjected to forced sterilizations. She situated forced sterilizations within a discourse of systemic settler colonialism, showing how sterilizations functioned as a cost effective means of erasing indigeneity in Canada.
