Girl Child Beading: A Harmful Cultural Practice

Dr. Jane Ngobia, PhD. is the Vice President, Inclusive Communities at Sheridan College in Canada.

She has held progressive leadership positions spanning more than 15 years locally and abroad within the post-secondary sector. Jane is described as a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) coach, community builder and empathetic change agent. In April 2021, she was recognized by The Globe and Mail as a recipient of the 2021 Best Executive Award for her work in advancing DEI at Sheridan and beyond. Over the years, she has served as a Chief Diversity Officer where she launched and oversaw pan-institutional initiatives to facilitate systemic and institutional equity.

Jane’s passionate pursuit of an equitably shared world has moved her to extend her personal and professional capital toward fostering a culture of care and justice for all.

Jane will be our guest speaker this Thursday where she will discuss girl-child beading, common among the Samburu Communities, and how we can help fight this harmful cultural practice.
