Advisory Committee

Given the complexity of the issues surrounding inequity, SFU Public Square has convened an Advisory Committee for its 2021 Community Summit series. The committee members generously share their expertise, lived experience and time to advise and support the development of the summit.

Specifically, they offer feedback on language and framing, give guidance on partnerships and programming and serve as ambassadors to the community. We are grateful for their generosity with their time and knowledge. Any missteps in the summit series, however, are our own.
