Intersections of my Identities: Navigating U of T as a Black/Indigenous/Person of Colour (BIPOC) Student with Disability

As a student with disability(ies) navigating U of T can sometimes be complex, layered, and overwhelming. This is a shared experience for many racialized and black, indigenous, and/or persons of colour (BIPOC) students on campus. What are the experiences for students with multiple identities? What in your experience is amplified, hidden, ignored, or overlooked? 

In this Accessibility Dialogue, connect with other students who may have similar lived experiences, as well as staff members from Indigenous Student Services, Anti-Racism & Cultural Diversity Office, and Accessibility Services. Through facilitated discussion the goal of this dialogue is to allow space for racialized and black, indigenous, and/or persons of colour students with disabilities to explore, grapple with, and reflect how the intersectionality & complexity of our identities  shape the way we navigate the university.
