Jamboard of actions and commitments to our 2SLGBTQIA+ STEM colleagues from allies



Jamboard of actions and commitments to our 2SLGBTQIA+ STEM colleagues from allies

For this initiative, we call on 2SLGBTQIA+ allies to share actions they have implemented that have brought about positive change and created a more equitable, inclusive and decolonized learning environment and workplace for UBC 2SLGBTQIA+ STEM community members. Actions could include anything from ensuring inclusive language is consistently used in department communications, to modifying a course’s reading list to include more 2SLGBTQIA+ scholars, to ensuring that everyone has “preferred name” stickers when organizing conferences or events.

Allies, please share your actions on this Jamboard. The jamboard will be open until November 19th and communicated out the UBC STEM faculties on this day.

On November 18th, allies are invited to join a drop-in session with Equity Strategists Maï Yasué (Faculty of Science) and Greg Lockwood (Faculty of Applied Science) at 3:30 pm to share and discuss upcoming and ongoing actions that lead to positive change for the 2SLGBTQIA+ STEM community.

If you would like to join the drop-in session on Thursday, November 18 at 3:30pm - 4:30pm.
