Affinity space for 2SLGBTQIA+ UBC graduate students, post-docs, staff and faculty in the STEM disciplines



Affinity space for 2SLGBTQIA+ UBC graduate students, post-docs, staff and faculty in the STEM disciplines

If you identify as a 2SLGBTQIA+ UBC graduate student, post-doc, staff or faculty member, you are invited to this affinity space, led by a Registered Clinical Counsellor (Thoko Moyo or Tiffany Wu) experienced in working with the 2SLGBTQIA+ community. This session will be a space for folks to share thoughts and experiences as 2SLGBTQIA+ students, staff and faculty in the STEM fields with the goal of generating connection, healing and joy amongst participants.

Session Details:

  • Each 1.5 hour session will be capped at 15 participants.
  • The session is designed to be a safe space for participants. For example, although participants will be provided opportunities to speak, there is no requirement to speak; folks can attend and just listen if they wish. 
  • There is no requirement to have a minimum knowledge of equity, inclusion or anti-oppression. All UBC 2SLGBTQIA+ STEM graduate students, post-docs, staff and faculty are welcome.
