MWIL Talks #MeToo

In light of the current #MeToo movement on social media, MWIL would like to open up a discussion for everyone to share their thoughts. The discussion will be a dialogue with McGill’s Professors Kelly Gordon and Dr.Shariff. This event is not a counselling session, but a place to dialogue with professors on the issue and the movement. A list of resources at McGill to support students will be made available. We will also be giving out free brownies ❤️

Inspirées par le récent mouvement #MoiAussi sur les réseaux sociaux, MWIL voudrait créer une discussion où tout le monde peuvent partager leur opinion. La discussion sera un dialogue avec les professeurs de McGill Kelly Gordon et Dr.Shariff. Cet événement n’est pas une séance de psy, mais un lieu de dialogue avec des professeurs sur le mouvement et le sujet en général. Une liste de ressources disponibles aux étudiants de McGill sera disponible.
