Event Details

At IGNITE, we believe you should have the biggest say in your student life. So, we want to hear from you.

Our listening sessions offer safe spaces for students from equity-deserving groups to share their lived experiences at Humber and UofGH. And, we simply want to listen—we'll use your feedback to better cater our programming and services to your needs.

Our first listening session is targeted at Black/African students. Held in partnership with Humber's Black Academic Success and Engagement (BASE) program, the meeting will include Meshanda Phillips, IGNITE's Lakeshore campus Student Engagement Co-ordinator, Shay Hamilton, chair of IGNITE's Board of Directors and a facilitator with experience guiding tough conversations—so you can feel comfortable touching on potentially triggering topics.

Following the session, IGNITE will keep you up-to-date on how we're using your feedback to improve your student life. You'll receive a letter from our CEO outlining exactly how your discussion is being used to refine IGNITE's offerings.

Who's invited?

The Spring 2022 listening session invites up to 15 students who self-identify as Black or African to share their lived experiences studying at Humber or UofGH.

Future listening sessions will be targeted at members of other equity-deserving groups.

Where is it?

Over MS Teams, a meeting link will be sent to registered attendees.

What's in it for me?

Listening session participants will be compensated with a $25 Amazon gift card as thanks for their engagement. Refreshments will be provided.

Is there anything else I should know?
