Explore the connections between college, community, and the government as we question the crises of the moment that need our current attention. The Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion Social Construction Workshop Series presents The Stories that Change Communities: An International Women’s Day Workshop with Sara Cumming.
Sara Cumming is an award-winning researcher and sociology professor at Sheridan. In recognition of International Women’s Day, this workshop provides a platform to hear about Sara’s work as Executive Director for Home Suite Hope, a Halton-based organization that helps mothers with children overcome homelessness. Sara has recently been honoured as a 2023 Women of Distinction nominee by YWCA Hamilton.
Sara will discuss opportunities for how we can apply specific skills—writing, editing, marketing, creative problem-solving and more—in order to enact social change for equity-deserving groups in our local communities. This discussion will explore the ways that we can work both as individuals and collaboratively, and the staying power of strong storytelling and its relevance to raising awareness about the needs of vulnerable populations.
There will be an opportunity to participate in a survey during the workshop and take-away knowledge of volunteer and internship work opportunities. A Q&A will follow the event.
