Attention all SFU TAs, TMs, RAs, grad facilitators, and sessional instructors! SFPIRG is here to support you!

Are you dealing with racism, sexism, or other oppressive/problematic content in the course of your work? Are you looking for support with how to respond to instances of oppressive/problematic content in students’ work, or from your colleagues? Are you looking for community with folks who also care about social justice? You’re not alone!

Join SFPIRG for our Fall 2020 Equity Support Group series – exclusively for SFU TAs, TMs, RAs, grad facilitators, and sessional instructors! The Equity Support Group takes place biweekly on Tuesdays from 1-3pm, starting on September 8th, 2020. The last session will be on December 1st. The full list of dates is below.

Drop into any of the sessions to get support with:

  • How to respond to problematic things that come up in students’ work or from your colleagues
  • How to apply equity / intersectionality / anti-oppression in the context of your research / studies / work
  • Processing how you’re doing, handling what’s happening for you
  • Tracking down other resources, supports, etc.

Please note that these are group support sessions, and so conversations may take place of a sensitive or challenging nature. In order to support a safer environment for all, we ask participants to be respectful, considerate, and compassionate throughout all sessions. Participants who are harassing, discriminating against, or deliberately harming others will be removed from the room.

We look forward to connecting with you this Fall!
