Lecture 3: Stephanie Simpson on empowering others and Human Rights in University.

This online Zoom lecture series centres speakers' diverse experiences navigating the challenging world of academia, finding opportunities within and beyond postsecondary institutions, and carving space for themselves and others in their fields. 

Stephanie Simpson is the Associate Vice Principal (Human Rights, Equity and Inclusion) at Queen’s University. Stephanie leads the Human Rights and Equity Office and plays a key role in fostering both competence and legislative compliance around matters such as inclusivity, diversity, accessibility, human rights, sexual violence prevention and equity on Queen’s campus. Stephanie holds a Master of Education degree and a Master of Laws degree from Queen’s. Her research has focused on how racism and processes of racialization affect youth in smaller urban centres, as well as adjudicative silences with respect to racial inequality and access to justice for racial equality seekers. Stephanie has been a well-respected leader on Equity, Diversity and Inclusion for many years.


This event is funded by York University's Liberal Arts and Professional Studies' Global & Community Engagement Events and Outreach Fund.
