Join us for a special edition of the Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering’s Disruptors & Dilemmas speaker series, featuring alumni and faculty from U of T Engineering, U of T Arts & Science, University of Toronto Mississauga & University of Toronto Scarborough.
Creating a climate-positive future is a grand challenge of our time and one that is especially relevant to Canada as a major energy producer and exporter. Disruptors & Dilemmas asks a multi-disciplinary panel of experts in engineering, management, philosophy and political science whether the transition to Net Zero will be a zero-sum game for Canada or whether there is a better path economically, socially and politically. To join the conversation, register here today.
This free virtual speaker panel will be moderated by Claire Kennedy, Former Chair of University of Toronto’s Governing Council.
Guests will be invited to engage in Q&A with the panelists following the discussion.
This year marks the 32nd anniversary of the École Polytechnique massacre, the deadliest mass shooting in Canadian history. The 14 victims, 12 of whom were engineering students, were targeted because they were women in an engineering school. The anniversary of the tragedy has since become a day of remembrance and action against the many ways women continue to experience harm, violence and discrimination — particularly among girls, Indigenous women, two-spirit people, Black women, trans women, racialized women, and women in STEM.
On Monday, December 6 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. ET, we invite students, staff, faculty, librarians, alumni and partners to attend a virtual, tri-campus commemoration of this important day. The event includes a memorial and panel discussion about the rise of gender-based violence during COVID-19, and how we can integrate prevention strategies into our pandemic recovery. Together, we will re-commit ourselves to reflection, awareness and putting an end to gender-based violence.
Take action and register today at uoft.me/NDRAVW.
This event is co-hosted by the Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering, Community Safety Office, Sexual and Gender Diversity Office, Sexual Violence Prevention and Support Centre and Hart House.
- Opening Remarks
- Award Presentation for Scholarly Achievement in the Area of Gender-Based Violence
