Diversity & Inclusion Representative
Hi, my name is Harjot and I am a 2nd year Kinesiology student. I have been a volunteer of the LSU since 2015 and this is my second term on Council. I work outside of the students’ union as a supervisor as well.
My role on Council is that of the diversity and inclusion rep. I am the chair of three committees which include: Women’s Committee, Queer Committee, & UPOC. I advocate for women, the queer & LGBT community, and those from coloured backgrounds. My committees host activities and initiatives that creates a friendly and welcoming environment for those from diverse identities facing issues and those impacted by those with diverse identities based upon their race, ethnicity, culture, heritage, gender, & sexual orientations.
As the rep for diversity & inclusion, my sole purpose and work revolves around ensuring fairness, equality, and inclusion for those pertaining to the mentioned minorities. I want to highlight and create awareness regarding issues faced by these groups of people by hosting more workshops, forums, and bringing in key note speakers.
I love sea and lakeside views and often make treks to enjoy that beautiful scenery.
