Watch the May 16 Fireside Chat on York’s DEDI Strategy

Fireside Chat for DEDI Strategy

Hosted by York President and Vice-Chancellor Rhonda Lenton and York Interim Vice-President Equity, People and Culture (EP&C) Alice Pitt, “Taking Action, Making Impact: A Fireside Chat on York’s DEDI Strategy” featured four York community members exploring how they can take up the Decolonizing, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (DEDI) Strategy in their work, how they imagine others can take up the work and how they imagine it can transform the institution.

The discussion, which took play May 16, centred on the creation of the strategy and the significance of incorporating decolonization into the strategy.  

The panelists for the fireside chat were Susan D. Dion, associate vice-president, Indigenous initiatives and professor, Faculty of Education; Gin Marshall, PhD student in the Social Work Program; Lisa Cole, director of programming, K2i academy, Lassonde School of Engineering; and Jean-Jacques Rousseau, instructor and special advisor to the Office of the Dean, Schulich School of Business.
