VP DIVERSITY & INCLUSION

Dante Carter

Hey everyone! My name is Dante Carter and I go by she/her pronouns! I am beyond thrilled to be the VP of Diversity and Inclusion this year. I, along with my amazing team, hope to work towards increasing the social awareness and education of both our internal council and external student body to create an environment that fosters an appreciation for diversity and a culture of inclusivity. In my free time, I can be found beading, thrifting, cooking, or off doing something spontaneous (I'm a self-proclaimed "adrenaline-seeker"). I'm known for my diverse hobbies so if you ever want to discuss the latest fashion trends or the best hooks to catch a walleye, I'm your girl! If you have any questions or ideas about the new D&I Portfolio please feel free to reach out to me. I hope to see you in the halls and wish you success in this upcoming year!

LAUREN AUSSANT

Director of Indigenous Initiatives

Hi everyone! My name is Lauren Aussant and my pronouns are she/her! I am a third-year management major and this is my third year on the EBSS. I am thrilled to be one of the Directors of Indigenous Initiatives this year on the new Diversity and Inclusion Portfolio! I cannot wait to start learning through this role and developing initiatives to bring positive change to the EBSS and Edwards as a whole! Outside of the EBSS, I am an International Business delegate with JDC West Team Sasky and the Logistics Director for the IBSS. When school and extra-curriculars aren't taking up my time, I love to take dance and pilates classes and go for coffee or drinks. I love meeting new people, so don't hesitate to reach out to me with any questions or if you want to chat! Hopefully we'll be able to meet in person soon too!

HARLEEN ARORA

Director of Diversity and Inclusion

Hi! I’m Harleen (she/they) - an HR major and international student, currently loving my co-op placement and being a new and exciting addition to EBSS as part of the D&I team. My passion for the realm of D&I stems from my drive to support my communities, and a desire to learn about and champion the wisdom of BIPOC, Queer and Disabled people who have shaped our society into a more equitable place. Very predictably so, I love all things People, Culture, Accessibility and Justice. I also love audiobooks, spontaneously dyeing my hair (or a brave volunteer’s), endlessly scrolling through TikTok and cooking (jk eating) desi food. If you see me in an online space or hopefully in Murray, the Louis building or walking down Arts/Edwards soon, don’t be a stranger. And if anything in this lil bio strikes your interest, reach out to me! I’d love to hear about your experiences and share mine. If you haven’t already, be sure to head over to the Intercouncil Club page to learn about YWiB and me!
