Equity Coffee Hour with Kristin Laurin

Thursday January 16, 2020
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Kristin Laurin, a member of the Department of Psychology’s Equity Committee, is hosting this week’s Equity & Inclusion Coffee Hour.

Each week, a different member of the department’s Equity Committee will be stationed at a coffee shop on campus, waiting for UBC Psychology faculty, staff, graduate or undergraduate students to drop by for a chat. If you have a concern related to equity or diversity, you can come to learn about existing resources, if you have a suggestion for the committee you can share it, or if you just want to chat about equity and diversity in the department, you’re welcome!

Growing up in Montreal, I spent most of my adolescence trying to conceal the fact that I came from an Anglophone family—my friends were all French-speaking Quebec separatists who I suspected would not respond well to that. Since then, relieved of that burden, I spent some years in Ontario and also in California. Now I live in Vancouver with my wife and our daughter.
