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.

Trailblazers’ Testimonies!

What makes a leader? How is “good” leadership defined – and by whom?

Too often the attributes depicting women in leadership present an exclusive value set which fails to encompass difference in individuals. At McGill Women in Leadership Students’ Association, we believe leaders come in all forms, from all sectors, represent all backgrounds and exist in varying roles all of which have equal merit. The theme of our conference this year is “Reimagining Leadership” where we aim to better understand what being a leader means to different women and how intersectionality plays a key role in determining the various pathways that direct women into leadership positions. It’s time for women to define, on our own terms, what leadership means to us and how we can work to create conditions in the workforce that truly celebrates diversity.

Location: New Residence Hall (Ballroom A)
Accessibility: Elevator access to the ballroom via the main floor.
Dress Code: Professional Attire
Language: This speaker event is being held in English.
