5 Days of Action

Five days of action at UVic wordmark


The purpose of the week is to encourage every member of the UVic community to take concrete steps toward ending discrimination, harassment, and sexualized violence on campus. 5 Days of Action is aimed at re-establishing our 365 days of commitment toward these goals.

Volunteer with us!

Volunteer for a variety of events throughout the week. Contact eqhr02@uvic.ca for more information!


The week explores intersecting sub-themes related to race and ethnicity, sex and gender, disability, sexuality, and religious affiliation. Explore how social location shapes our commitment and capacity to identify and address barriers to inclusion. Programming for the week includes:

  • Daily calls to action
  • Workshops
  • Diverse forms of social media engagement and activism

Event Schedule

A full schedule of events will be posted in mid-September, and registration opens in October!


We welcome proposals for workshops, events or public lectures on these topics to be hosted during the week. Our office can help with logistics, promotion and registration for any interested faculty, staff, student or department. Faculty are encouraged to tailor course content to broaden the conversations taking place at UVic during this week.

Contact us to share how you want to participate.

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