Shared Unity, Shared Action: Dismantling Anti-Asian Racism @ Online event
Mar 31 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am

The Anti-Racism & Cultural Diversity Office joins the University of Toronto in condemning anti-Asian racism, misogyny, and all forms of racial violence. There is no denying the pain, sadness, and anger that many are feeling given recent events of racial and gender-based violence in Atlanta, Georgia. As we navigate and action-plan during these difficult times, the Anti-Racism & Cultural Diversity Office invites the community to collectively gather to confront, resist and denounce racism, anti-Asian racism, and White supremacy. Join us as we ignite love, compassion, support and restoration while building community during these challenging times.

This space will center a presentation and Q &A with May Lui, Educator and Consultant, on the topic, “Confronting Anti-Asian Racism: What you Need to Know”. This conversation will explore the complexities of anti-Asian racism, its impact and the principles that must be centered as we move forward to meaningful change.

  • Format: Presentation and Q & A, followed by a closure activity.
  • Platform: Virtual- Zoom.
  • Audience: Racialized voices will be prioritized. Allies are welcome to attend. Open to students, staff, faculty, librarians, chaplains, and external community.

Skule Lunch & Learn presents Drinking Water and Health – Should we be Concerned About Microplastics? @ Online event
Feb 16 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

 

U of T Engineering Lunch & Learn

U of T Engineering alumni, join us for this monthly series.

Did you know that the Drinking Water Research Group (DWRG) at the University of Toronto has received funding from Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC), as well as the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) to investigate microplastics in Canadian drinking water? Efforts by the DWRG over the past three years have led to the development and subsequent refinement of advanced microplastic sampling and analysis techniques, allowing us to focus on the different health impact related issues.

But what exactly are Microplastics and why are they referred to as a “triple threat”?
