Centre for Women and Trans People (CWTP York) Disorientation roundtable for Black, Indigenous, and people of colour (BIPOC) in academia [and/or interested in pursuing a career in academia].

Through this roundtable discussion, we aim to create a space for critical conversation and relationship building amongst BIPOC academics who are similarly positioned and critically engaged with the academic industrial complex. We hope to hold a space for deep engagement with our strategies of resistance and the ways in which we can mindfully navigate a system that was not created with our bodies in mind
