The University of Guelph-Humber’s Family and Community Social Services Program is holding their seventh annual See Change Symposium on Thursday, a student-led conference taking place at residence on campus. 

The sold out symposium is taking place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the T Building conference room and will feature several prominent speakers in mental health, social studies and family experts, among other specialties.

According to the event page, the conference is “founded on three pillars: Learn, Act, Lead”, and is free to attend.

“Learn about the nature and scope of our most insidious social challenges; Act to promote a compassionate and committed response to those in need by starting solution-based conversations; Lead to incite change in pursuit of social justice, to empower, and to build resiliency.”

Associate Professor of Child, Adolescent and Family Studies Kaz Stuart is the conference’s keynote, and is also the principal lecturer in the Department of Health, Psychology and Social Science at the University of Cumbria in the United Kingdom.

Speaker Alex Neve will be presenting an exclusive lecture and discussion entitled “Standing up for Human Rights in a World of Turmoil and Division” with an emphasis on women’s rights, according to the FCSS symposium organizers.

There will also be a clinical panel featuring Guelph-Humber professor Nelson Parker and Dave Kydd.

There will also be a free lunch at the See Change Symposium.
