Dear FIST Graduates of 2022/23,
On behalf of the Feminist Institute of Social Transformation, I extend my heartfelt congratulations to all of you on your remarkable achievements. This is a momentous occasion that marks the culmination of years of hard work, dedication, and perseverance in your pursuit of knowledge and personal growth. I am particularly proud to witness the success of each and every one of you.
Your accomplishments stand as a testament to your unwavering belief in the power of feminist thought and praxis. The world needs compassionate and fearless leaders like you, who are equipped with the knowledge and tools to challenge existing systems of oppression and strive for a just future. We hope that your time with us has provided you with a deep understanding of intersectionality, and the complex ways in which social identities and structures interact with disparities in power, privilege, and lived outcomes.
As you embark on the next chapter of your lives, we encourage you to continue your advocacy to challenge the status quo and amplify marginalized voices. The skills and knowledge you have acquired during your time with us will empower you to break barriers, shatter glass ceilings, and pave the way for more inclusive and equitable communities. Remember that the feminist movement is not an individual journey but a collective effort. Stay connected with your fellow graduates and build strong networks of support. Together, you can intensify your impact and create a ripple effect that reverberates throughout society.
