About the series: The presence of Blackness in Canadian academia exists on a continuum of underrepresented, significantly underrepresented, to negligible. The purpose of this speaker series is to foreground Black voices in fields where Blackness is particularly underrepresented, and provide actionable and measurable strategies to increase Black representation and Black excellence in these fields.
