2023 IBPOC Faculty & Staff Meet & Greet

IBPOC faculty and staff meet and greet


Kick-off the term with the IBPOC Faculty & Staff Meet & Greet! Enjoy refreshments while connecting with other IBPOC-identifying faculty, staff and postdoctoral scholars at UBCO.

This event is organized by UBCO faculty and staff with support from the Equity & Inclusion Office.


What to expect

  • Connect in a casual space and strengthen your community with other IBPOC-identifying community members
  • Enjoy refreshments while mingling and expanding your networks

Who can join

This is a space for UBCO faculty, staff and postdoctoral fellows who identify as Indigenous, Black, Person of Colour and/or racialized community members to build their support networks. To learn more about why people who identify as IBPOC need their own spaces, check out this article by Kelsey Blackwell. We thank you for understanding and supporting this community initiative.


We are committed to providing a welcoming, accessible experience for everyone. If you require an accessibility-related measure (e.g. sign language interpreter, accessible parking, specific dietary requirements), please indicate in the registration form or contact the event organizers at equity.ubco@ubc.ca.
