Join us for a special virtual event to kick off International Week 2021: “The Importance of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Work and its Impact on the International Student Experience,” featuring Dr. Opiyo Oloya and a student panel. 

Since joining Western this fall as the inaugural Associate Vice-President of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion, Dr. Oloya has had the opportunity to speak to many campus members, including international students.

In this discussion, Dr. Oloya will share some insights he has gained from his own experiences as a newcomer to Canada and through his conversations with international students and student leaders on campus.

Dr. Oloya’s presentation will be followed by a discussion with student leaders on how we can make our campus community more inclusive and improve the sense of belonging for international students.
