5 Days of Action

Five days of action at UVic wordmark

November 14-18, 2022

5 Days of Action is a free, week-long event aimed at amplifying the work groups, units and organizations (on- and off-campus) are doing to create a more diverse, inclusive and equitable campus and community throughout the year. Each day of the week represents a different call to action. Monday asks us to listen, Tuesday-reflect, Wednesday-dialogue, Thursday-engage, and Friday-take action. There will be many opportunities to reflect on what we can do as individuals and as part of a team to improve the sense of inclusion and belonging in our greater community.

During the event, we encourage you to take part by: visiting one of our artistic events; attending a workshop or seminar; engaging with our curated list of things to read, watch and do.

Any UVic community member can host or facilitate an event over the course of the week, or anytime throughout the year. No matter how we engage, 5 Days of Action: 365 of Commitment is an opportunity for our community to highlight our shared commitment to end discrimination, harassment, and sexualized violence.

If you have an event or program that you want to be spotlighted during the week, or you want to discuss ways to get involved, please contact us at daysofaction@uvic.ca.


This event is held on the UVic campus, traditional territory of the lək̓ʷəŋən peoples, and the Songhees, Esquimalt and WSÁNEĆ peoples whose historical relationships with the land continue to this day.
