INTRODUCING: ASHLEE REDMOND
 



Hey Innis! My name is Ashlee and I'm a second year student double-majoring in English and Gender Studies. I, along with my portfolio partner Kristen Rachuk, am one of your two Equity and Outreach Directors elected into the ICSS for the 2016/17 academic year! Our goal is to connect Innis students to the community that has graciously welcomed them by providing them with opportunities to give back. Over the course of the year, Equity and Outreach, as a facet of the ICSS, will run events aimed at fostering occasions for involvement, such as our Movember campaign!

All throughout the month of November, the ICSS will be collecting donations for the Canadian Cancer Society and for your chance to win a $50 gift card to wherever you'd like! Donations can be made online or in person at the ICSS Office (Innis College, Rm 107) Mondays-Thursdays! On top of that tweeting/(insta)graming a Movember-themed photo of you donating earns you 2 more entries into the draw! (Using the #InnisShavesLives of course) Kristen and I are over the moon to be able to offer the students of Innis College the chance to support such a phenomenal cause and have some facial hair-themed fun along the way!
