The United Nations HeForShe Movement is coming to CUE!

Posted on: Sep 11, 2019

Concordia University of Edmonton will be the first Alberta stop in the tour, which will be travelling from Toronto to Vancouver next week. The #GetFree University Tour, sponsored by De Beers, is designed to engage students and university communities for the advancement of gender equality.

Our event will kick off (quite literally!) with CUE’s Thunder Womens’ Soccer team and FC Edmonton, at a friendly practice at 9am. Cheer them on, sign up for the HeForShe movement, and receive great HeForShe giveaways!

Then join us for refreshments and a panel discussion aimed at considering allyship and how we can all work together to secure a world with gender equity. There’ll be a dynamic group of speakers and great panel discussion.

Speakers and panelists will include:

  • Pamela Ellemers – Manager of Mineral Resource Management, De Beers Group
  • Hannah Ludlage – Student, Vice-President, Student Life, Concordia Students’ Association
  • Dr. Ha Tran – Assistant Professor, Department of Mathematical and Physical Sciences, Faculty of Science
  • Dr. Barb van Ingen – CUE Vice-President, Student Life & Learning
  • Edward Wageni – United Nations Global HeForShe Initiative Programme Manager

Plus a special guest!
