Fellows in Equity, Anti-Oppression and Social Justice

February 15, 2024 — 

Applications are open for a new program from the Office of Equity Transformation (OET).

The Fellows in Equity, Anti-Oppression and Social Justice program aims to ensure student voices, vision and experiences are valued and embedded into institutional initiatives for social justice, equity, accessibility and anti-oppression at the University of Manitoba.

The program will provide up to five paid fellowships for students from diverse backgrounds to advance the collective work at University of Manitoba of identifying and narrowing systemic inequities. Each placement will be 6 to 9 months in duration, providing experiential and work-integrated learning in key areas such as anti-ableism, anti-racism, social justice, 2SLGBTQIA+ inclusion, age-inclusivity, as well as equity, diversity and inclusion.

“These fellowships are a great opportunity for student learning and involvement as we take action on UM’s commitments to advance equity, diversity, inclusion and accessibility. This program also builds institutional capacity for transformative systemic change at UM,” says Tina Chen, Vice-Provost (Equity).

This program is open to undergraduate and graduate students from all faculties.

Applications are open now, with a deadline of February 23, 2024. Learn more and apply at the Fellows in Equity, Anti-Oppression and Social Justice webpage.
