Upcoming Affinity Group Meetings

Our Affinity Groups are intended to bring people together over a commonality and share the mutual benefits of our shared identities. The groups are designated "safe spaces," where everyone in that group shares a particular identity. For people who are often underrepresented, underserved and often excluded by the systems in which they operate, an affinity space can offer community and reduce feelings of isolation through the benefit of shared experiences. Several of our groups have upcoming meetings planned.

  • East Asian Administrators – Wed. Jan. 31, 3:45-4:45 p.m. EST
  • South Asian Administrators – Thurs. Feb. 1, 4:30-5:30 p.m. EST
  • First Nation, Métis, Inuit Administrators – Tues. Feb. 13, 4:30-5:30 p.m. EST
  • Black Administrators – Wed. Mar. 6, 4:15-5:15 p.m. EST
