Inspired by an op-ed by graduate student Dwayne Tucker, the Effective Mentorship of Racialized Graduate Students (EMRGS) initiative focuses on the complexities and gaps in the mentorship of racialized students at UBC by calling on a constellation of graduate students, mentors and experts. 

Graduate students, faculty and staff are invited to join this day-long forum to hear from students and mentors on the value of diversity in graduate education and discuss how we can all contribute toward a safe, respectful, and more equitable learning sphere for racialized students at UBC.
