Catalyzing Change: Equity Enhancement Fund Showcase

Join us on February 13 from 12:30 to 1:30 for the 2018 Equity Enhancement Fund (EEF) Info Session and Showcase. This is an opportunity to recognize and celebrate student, staff and faculty projects that advance equity and inclusion on campus, and to learn more about how to apply.

UBC Equity Enhancement Fund supports collaborative projects that build student, faculty, and staff competencies and understanding related to issues of equity, diversity and inclusion, and promote a respectful environment at UBC through education, dialogue, and community engagement.

The showcase will provide an opportunity to learn about the types of projects funded, ask questions about the application process and criteria, and connect with the wider community of those working to champion equity and inclusion on campus. Refreshment will be provided.
