As we strive for equity in the Canadian university, how do we support those presently engaged in informal and formal equity efforts across Canadian campuses? This session is concerned with how students, staff, and faculty alike navigate equity work in the neoliberal university, asking how, in justice work that is future oriented, do we support and care for one another in the here and now, what are our practical strategies? This conversation will be grounded in the question, how does mentorship and community care impact and facilitate equity work in the university? And how do we conceive of and negotiate compensation for equity work in our neoliberal universities and across institutional hierarchies?
