Visions for Equality

Imagining a world that challenges inequality and celebrates diversity

Inspired by the success of our 2017 conference, Visions for Canada 2042, the Faculty of Public Affairs will be exploring a new topic in the new year:Visions for Equality.

This one-day conference will feature interdisciplinary panel discussions on topics such as:

  • Perspectives of Gender and Equality
  • Because it’s 2018: Feminism, Law and Equality in the Trudeau Era
  • It’s Still Cold in Here: Visions for Campus Equality
  • Revolutionary and Post-Revolutionary Visions of Equality
  • Equality in Our World: Global or International Approaches?
  • Building Equity or Inequality? International Development in Theory, Practice and Education
  • The Shadow Side of Equality

The Faculty of Public Affairs is home to a robust community of researchers who are internationally known and recognized in their fields. We invite you to join us for this day-long discussion on one of our society’s most pressing issues.
