Brunel Lecture Centre "A", Brunel University London, Uxbridge UB8 3PH, Tickets free.
Huda Mukbil discusses her career in the Canadian Security Intelligence Service and her recent discrimination lawsuit against her employer.
Huda Mukbil and her family fled Ethiopia during its civil war and became Canadian citizens. Shortly after the attacks of 11 September 2001, she became an officer of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS). In this talk, Huda will discuss the discrimination she experienced in the service of Canadian national security. CSIS began to treat Huda as an insider threat, especially following the American-led invasion of Iraq in 2003 and the rise of homegrown extremism in the West. Huda's presentation will reveal the twists and turns of her sixteen-year career at CSIS, including her inability to break into managerial positions unofficially reserved for white men. She will speak about her experience fighting misogyny and systemic racism and her road to demand for equity and reforms.
