We are excited to host our next storytelling series; Laugh, Cry, Cringe with Lotoya Jackson: World Traveller, Storyteller and E-Learning Developer. Lotoya has travelled to 37 countries on 5 continents—mostly solo—and has had stints living and teaching English as a second language (ESL) in Tokyo and Montreal.

Lotoya will share key learnings from her journeys as a Black woman travelling solo. This will include a discussion of her experiences teaching ESL in Japan. The aim of this discussion is to empower people of colour, especially women, to travel. You will leave this session with practical tips and strategies to navigate negative travel experiences.

This session is open to all U of T students, staff, faculty and librarians. Please note: Only "utoronto" emails (".utoronto.ca", "mail.utoronto.ca") will be able to join this online session. We recommend that you create a U of T Zoom account.

If you require an accommodation to join this virtual session, please contact UTM's Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Office.
