Join us at the Institute of Women’s and Gender Studies on Thursday Oct 22, 1-2 pm, for a presentation by social justice organizer Kimalee Phillip on creating feminist workplaces, including developing anti-racist practices.

She completed her Bachelor’s degree in Human Rights and Law and her Master’s degree in Legal Studies at Carleton University. She sits on the Board of Trustees with the Groundswell Social Justice Fund and organizes with the Caribbean Solidarity Network. She works as a Human Rights Representative with Canada’s largest public sector union, the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE), and does movement-support work with the Association for Women’s Rights in Development (AWID).
