Webinar: We're Talking Boss Moves for Young Black Men (U of T Mississauga BAEE )


Tuesday, February 16, 2021 at 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM EST

As a high risk group, it is imperative that Black males are encouraged to pursue a university education. One of the ways in which BAEE@UTM is doing this is by inspiring them to envision themselves at U of T Mississauga. All Black male high school students are invited to join BAEE@UTM for “We’re Talking Boss Moves for Young Black Men for the opportunity to engage with current Black male BAEE@UTM Ambassadors, who will share personal experiences and insights through cultural references and discussion.

This event is facilitated by a Black student recruitment officer at the University of Toronto and is intended for those who self-identify as Black.
