The Walrus Talks speaks to what it means to fit in

Sexuality. Identity. Disability. Bullying. Discrimination. Western is not shying away from these tough conversations as The Walrus Talks Belonging, an evening of eight engaging speakers exploring what it means to belong, comes to London Music Hall on October 17.

Speakers include YouTuber and motivational speaker, Molly Burke, and Founder of the Amanda Todd Legacy Society, Carol Todd.

The Walrus Talks is a national series of events about Canada and its place in the world. This is the third year Western has partnered with Walrus Foundation – a charitable non-profit with an educational mandate to support writers, artists, ideas, and debate on matters vital to Canadians. This is the event’s first year off campus and members of the community are invited to attend.
