Navigating Academics as a Racialized Person: Rewriting the Narrative
 
The world is full of dominant colonial narratives that prescribe our expected roles. We can challenge these narratives by creating our own stories, and raise awareness of the lived experiences of voices that have been left out.

Join Academic Success peers as we discover our personal strengths, restructure our stories as racialized students and reflect on these questions together:
    •    Look at the current stories that shape your life: how have these stories both helped and hindered you? 
    •    How do current colonial narratives and expectations leave out the experience of racialized people?
    •    How could we rewrite our stories to better reflect our identity and strengths?

Dinner will be provided: please register for this event by Sunday evening so that we can provide enough food for everyone. Dietary requirements should be emailed to academicsuccesspeers@utoronto.ca, with "NARP dietary requirements, Feb 7" as the subject line.
