OVERVIEW

Fellows gain leadership knowledge and training from Mosaic's network of change makers, including industry professionals, speakers, educators, and activists from across Canada. We provide these opportunities through monthly: 

WORKSHOPS

on leadership and dismantling prejudice, surrounding diverse topics including mental health, teamwork, communication and breaking down systemic barriers.

SEMINARS

led by Fellows to strengthen their leadership skills and facilitate discussions on topics such as advancing anti- racism, inspiring and mobilizing youth, climate justice, human rights and decolonization efforts.

LEARNING MODULES

taught by inspiring speakers, social justice activists, award-winning journalists, and impactful writers who are exclusive to the UofMosaic Digital Learning Hub.

UofMosaic Fellows will create projects in the second half of the program around concepts and ideas that matter to them:

Fellows will use their leadership training to facilitate and produce campus dialogues. These innovative dialogues aim to dismantle prejudice and create actionable change on campuses across Canada.

RESEARCH PUBLICATIONS

Towards the end of their Fellowship, Fellows will publish research through Mosaic Institute on dismantling prejudice in the communities that matter most to them.

All Fellows will receive a professional development fund at the end of their time in the UofMosaic program.

This fund allows Fellows to pursue a professional development option of their choice outside our programming. The formats can vary from courses, webinars, conferences to skill-based training, and aim to allow Fellows to pursue their goals and continue to activate their potential.

2021-23 COHORT

Our 2021-23 UofMosaic Fellow Cohort was our biggest cohort yet. Fellows were able to connect in-person for our August 2022 meet-up, as well as our end of program Campus Dialogues. Producing publications on health equity, discrimination in housing, and the stigma of gay parenting, we are beyond proud of what this cohort was able to achieve. Stay tuned for publications Summer 2023.

2019-21 COHORT

Our 2019-2021 Fellow Cohort overcame immense obstacles. Despite enduring a pandemic, several lockdowns, and adapting to connecting only online, our Fellows produced a series of Campus Dialogues and Publications that covered complex subjects, including food scarcity, gender violence, and religious persecution.

PUBLICATIONS

Towards the end of their Fellowship, Fellows publish research through Mosaic Institute on dismantling prejudice in the communities that matter most to them. Below are the most recent publications from the 2021-23 cohort.
