AuthenticallyU seeks to raise awareness on campus around body image issues and disordered eating. The committee approaches such topics in an intersectional manner, with a focus on physical, mental and emotional wellness. The committee organizes a series of campaigns and events to achieve this end.
Elephant in the Room at Queen’s University is the first youth chapter of the Mood Disorders Society of Canada. The committee organizes a multifaceted, yearlong campaign designed to eliminate stigma associated with mental health by engaging students in unique and creative ways.
This committee raises promotes awareness of topical equity and diversity issues on campus. Two notable initiative taken on each year is LGBTQ Action Week and History of Oppression at Queen’s.
The Research and Reccomendation Committee provides students with opportunities to engage in research and critical thinking on equity-related matters. The team works to draft policy that addresses topical and relevant issues facing the Society and its membership.
Formerly Women’s Worth Week, Worth holds a series of events in November to engage students in discussions on how narrow perceptions of femininity and masculinity perpetuate gendered violence, and gender based exclusion. Worth also holds a “Maskulinities Summit” in March that looks to deconstruct notions of what it means to be a man.
