The PGSS Environment Committee and Gorilla Composting proudly present a workshop in celebration of International Women's Day. Participants will learn about harmful chemicals in cosmetics and make a selection of healthy alternatives that you can take home, such as Rosemary Bath Salt, Maple Sugar Body Wash, Cleansing and Exfoliating Scrub, and Cranberry Lip Balm. Participants will also receive a booklet with these and other recipes. Pre-registration required at the PGSS office, open daily 11:30 am-5 pm (7 pm on Thursdays), at Thomson House, 3650 McTavish.
Caring for others may be unpaid, familial work, wage labour or a profession. But however it is defined, it is largely carried out by women. "Women in care work" examines how labouring in care affects women's financial, social and mental health. Panel moderator: Sabrina Hom, Faculty Lecturer in Women's Studies. Panelists: Joan Foster, Thelma Johnson and Shari Fern Katz.
Before you pull out your broom for some spring cleaning, take a moment to practice your sweeping on the ice at our alumni curling event. All levels are welcome, and an instructor will be on hand to provide lessons on rules and equipment, how to throw rocks, and even how to holler like a pro.
POSTPONED - Contemplating a career in Montreal? Insights for the next generation of jurists from McGill
POSTPONED TO A LATER DATE - Law students, alumni and stakeholders of the Montreal legal community are invited to attend an innovative event to discuss legal career opportunities in Montreal. McGill Law graduates hold important and meaningful positions throughout the world. Of equal significance, though, is the success of our grads who remain in or return to Montreal and contribute to its vibrancy. Come listen to a panel discussion involving various alumni with experience abroad and in Montreal: Bernard Amyot (Heenan Blaikie - president, Canadian Bar Association); Martin Valasek (Ogilvy Renault - formerly practicing in New York); Alix D'Anglejan-Chatillon (Stikeman Elliott - formerly practicing in Paris and New York); Robert Raich (Spiegel Sohmer - Faculty Advisory Board); and Jan-Fryderyk Pleszczynski (Digital Dimension - former president, Montreal Junior Board of Trade). A cocktail reception will follow for everyone to exchange their thoughts on Montreal as a career destination of choice. RVSP before
