Dr. Hamilton-Hinch is Assistant Vice‑Provost of Equity and Inclusion at Dalhousie University and Associate Professor in Dalhousie’s School of Health and Human Performance.

Her presentation, titled “Leading from a Race Conscious Lens,” will explore the importance of a race conscious lens in the awakening of the Black Lives Matter Movement in academia and leadership. Dr. Hamilton-Hinch will explore the invisibility and importance of people of African descent, particularly African Nova Scotians in education from preschool to post-secondary and the impact of a race evasive lens. She will explore the importance of leadership positions that challenge white heteronormativity. Participants will walk away with a better understanding of the importance of recognizing the lived experiences of people of African descent.

This event will take place online via MS Teams on Wednesday, November 15, 2023 from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. Atlantic Time.
