Nina Hermes is currently in her final year of study towards a BSW at McGill University. She has extensive experience supporting and advocating for survivors of sexual assault on campus through work with the Sexual Assault Centre of McGill Student’s Society (SACOMSS) and by sharing her own personal experiences with trauma. She has worked considerably with incoming students both through programming and volunteering during orientation week and as a don in residences. She has also completed multiple clinical internships as a social work student in the fields of mental health and addictions. Nina currently works as a don in McGill residences and hopes to continue her advocacy and support work in Montreal after she graduates.
What is TEDxMontrealWomen?
The TEDxMontrealWomen event challenges each and everyone of us, as members of society, to question and define our values and beliefs in an effort to create an awareness and understanding of why we behave as we do, what motivates our behaviors and what drives our decisions to conduct our lives as we do. With this increased consciousness, we discover that we are more empowered than we previously thought to make positive, disruptive and impactful changes in whichever spheres of influence we choose. TEDxMontrealWomen is an independently organized event and an integral part of the global TEDWomen community.
