ABOUT THIS EVENT
Co-presented by BCIT Diversity Circles, BCIT Indigenous Initiatives & Partnerships, BCIT Respect, Diversity, and Inclusion Office, and the BCIT Student Association. ASL will be provided through the Zoom. Please let us know if you have any additional needs to participate. This session is open to all members of the BCIT student, staff, faculty, and internal partner (e.g. student association, alumni association) community.
Special Screening: The O Show
Join us for a special screening of The O Show: a documentary about Orene Askew, aka DJ O Show. This special film, about an incredible Afro-Indigenous, Two Spirit leader, was made by Sharad Kharé from Human Biography. Both Orene and Sharad are BCIT alumni and we are thrilled they will be joining us to talk about the film and answer questions!
This will be a hybrid event. Attendees are invited to join by Zoom (a link will be sent to registrants) and there is a special invitation for Indigenous Students at BCIT to watch the screening in the Gathering Place with food provided by Diversity Circles.
If you are an BCIT Indigenous student and you want to join the event in-person, please register below and let the staff know at Gathering_Place@bcit.ca. This will help us plan for space & food.
Code of Conduct
Diversity Circles, in cooperation with the BCIT Respect, Diversity, and Inclusion (RDI) Office, has recently introduced a Code of Conduct for our events and initiatives.
Diversity Circles has always benefitted from the empathy, sincerity, and respectful curiosity of our community, and this has helped create events and initiatives where we hold productive and authentic discussions, advancing our knowledge and utilization of equity, diversity, and inclusion principles.
As our events and initiatives continue to reach out to diverse audiences which include BCIT employees, students, and partners (BCIT Student Association, BCIT Alumni Association, and industry guests), and as we have moved towards presenting events both in person and via teleconferencing platforms, we realize that having a Code of Conduct will help maintain the accountable, respectful spaces our community has come to expect from Diversity Circles events and initiatives.
Please take the time to review our Code of Conduct prior to your upcoming participation.
