The 12th annual Viola Desmond Awards Ceremony
About this Event
We look forward to welcoming you at the 12th Annual Viola Desmond Awards Ceremony! Everyone is welcome to attend.
The Viola Desmond Awards Ceremony is an annual event that recognizes the contributions of outstanding Black Canadian women from Ryerson University and the greater Toronto community. Named after Ms. Viola Desmond, this event celebrates the catalyzing efforts she made towards achieving human rights for Black people in Canada.
For the first time, Ryerson will also honour a member of Ryerson’s alumni. There will also be a presentation of the Viola Desmond bursary to a deserving Ryerson student.
The event will take place in POD-250 (Podium Building) which is wheelchair accessible. There will also be closed captioning at the event.
