The President’s Leadership Forum on anti-racism and systemic inequities in higher education

The President’s Leadership Forum is a regularly occurring annual event that brings senior leaders from across UBC together on topics of strategic importance.

Hosted by UBC President and Vice-Chancellor Santa Ono, the 2020 President’s Leadership Forum featured an afternoon of conversation around systemic racism and UBC’s commitment to inclusion.

The discussion was led by Professor Malinda S. Smith, appointed Vice-Provost, Equity, Diversity & Inclusion (University of Calgary), along with Dr. Ninan Abraham (UBC), Dr. Frances Henry (York University), Dr. Sheryl Lightfoot (UBC), Dr. Minelle Mahtani (UBC), and Dr. Handel Wright (UBC).
