The National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women is held annually on December 6th to commemorate the 14 women who died in the Montreal Massacre. This is a day to reaffirm our commitment to end violence and discrimination against marginalized and intersectional genders, violence and discrimination that continues today. This panel event is the first in a series we will be introducing to develop the event into a week-long series of student-based events raising awareness, celebrating women in STEM, and taking action to end gender-based violence. As the Montreal Massacre targeted women in Engineering, our goal is to develop events that give voice to the experiences, ideas for new ways forward, and actions to end discrimination and to encourage fair and safe participation of women and gender diverse people, especially people racialized not white, at Memorial. This panel will involve 5 speakers from our Memorial community to discuss strategies for making Memorial a more welcoming, safe, and participatory space for students, staff and faculty. Speakers will include students and past-students, faculty, and activists specializing in gender-based violence. The goal is to raise awareness of what remains to be accomplished to end gender-based discrimination and violence, to bring our communities together, and to work towards developing more events for future commemorations in the December 6th Vigil at Memorial.
