Stories of Asian Identities on Campus and in Community: A Panel Discussion Hosted by University of Calgary International

May is Asian Heritage Month in Canada, and is an opportunity for all Canadians to learn more about the many achievements and contributions of Canadians of Asian descent who, throughout our history, have done so much to make Canada the amazing country we share today.

UCalgary International is pleased to invite you to a panel discussion on the 2021 theme for Asian Heritage Month, “Recognition, Resilience and Resolve”. Speakers will share their journey as builders and contributors to their local and international communities. The conversation will focus on their successes, and will also touch on their unique struggles and challenges as Asian Canadians to ultimately open a discussion on how we can collectively impact positive change.
