Fall Lectures at Woodsworth
Pivot to online delivery
We were very pleased that two of our annual lectures as well as an Alumni Café event were all delivered successfully via Zoom.
All three events registered very high attendance. Through virtual delivery, the events were still live, yet alumni, friends, students, and faculty members from all around the globe were able to attend.
The three lectures were:
- The Annual Sefton-Williams Memorial Lecture: Organizing with Heart: New Ways of Building Worker Movements, with speaker Kris Rondeau, director of AFSCME New England Organizing Project
- The Annual Saul Goldstein Memorial Lecture: COVID-19 and equity in Canada - if diversity is our strength why are so many black people dying? with speaker Dr. Kwame McKenzie, CEO of the Wellesley Institute
- Woodworth Alumni Association Alumni Cafe lecture: Mother Goddess, Matriarch, or Queen? The Recently Discovered ‘Lady of Tayinat’ and Female Patronage in Southeastern Turkey, with speaker Prof. Timothy Harrison, chair, Dept. of Near & Middle Eastern Civilizations
You can watch all three lectures on the Woodsworth College YouTube channel.
