Equity Summit

Through a series of activities, workshops, and speaker panels, QWIL's Equity Summit brings students from all across Queen's together for a day-long event to engage in conversations surrounding equity while challenging men and women alike to create reserved opportunities for traditionally marginalized communities.

Equity Summit 2022 | Beyond The Conversation

In November 2022, QWIL introduced Beyond the Conversation: A QWIL Equity Summit. The event took place at the Delta Kingston Waterfront Hotel, where delegates were joined by a group of dedicated and accomplished female panellists eager to share their stories.

What Our Delegates And Team Have To Say


"I attended the Equity Summit last year, and it was one of the best events I’ve had the opportunity to be involved with during my time at Queen’s. The event brought together a diverse and passionate group of individuals dedicated to promoting equity and inclusivity in all aspects of life. It was great to see how acts of allyship could have an impact, and I personally learned how to better show up as an ally every day. Overall, it’s a great event for anyone committed to contributing to a more equitable tomorrow."
