EDI action-planning: Building a sustainable network for students


Join the second session of the Student Equity Engagement Network (SEEN) Spring Series to solidify partnerships with other students involved in advancing EDI at UBC. The purpose of this session is to build self-sustaining connections among students from different units and departments to facilitate collaboration and resource-sharing, and more effectively navigate barriers and obstacles to implementing EDI at UBC. 

This event is the second of three sessions in the SEEN Spring Series. Launched in the fall of 2022, SEEN seeks to bring together students working on EDI initiatives across UBC to maximize the impact of their efforts. Find more SEEN sessions.
