Two members of the Laurier Students’ Union Board of Directors resign
On June 14, Fiza Iqbal and Muna Mohamed posted individual resignations from their positions on the Wilfrid Laurier University Students’ Union Board of Directors on their personal Instagram accounts.
The former Students’ Union directors both cited issues with the manner in which they were spoken to by “board members and resources,” as well as “… many inappropriate and ignorant comments and attitudes present when speaking on sensitive issues,” Mohamed and Iqbal’s posts said.
“Unfortunately, after a few weeks of being on the board, I realized that it is not a suitable place for BIPOC,” Mohamed said in her Instagram caption.
“As a Person of Colour, I do not have the luxury to remain ‘neutral’,” Iqbal’s post caption said.
Representatives from the Students’ Union did not respond to The Cord’s request for comment.
