Description:

Lecture 3: Taylor Stocks on work-life balance. 

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. By creating space for balanced representation and illuminating diverse lived realities in academia and beyond, we might all be empowered to reflect on and share our own journeys, and be better equipped to support each other in the process.

Our third speaker will be discuss work-life balance. Taylor Stocks (they/he) is a trans, disabled artist and activist from St. John's, Newfoundland, currently living in Hull, Quebec. They are a PhD Candidate at Memorial University, studying queer student activism and intersections with 2sLGBTQ+ policy in Canadian high schools. Their academic journey has been marked by significant moments of illness and gender complexity. They balance their studies with artistic pursuits of music and drag, and their consulting business provides strategic work for non-profits.
