Bow Valley Chamber Speaker Series with Aurora Claire Borin

Description

We are very excited to welcome Aurora Claire Borin as one of our amazing speakers on March 27, 2023! Check out further details about this speaker series written by Aurora below including her bio. 

When we think of the queer experience, we so often think of singular pride events or discriminatory stories that make the news. It is so often grim, but that's not all there is. What does Queer Joy look like? When times get tough, what kinds of experiences do folks fall back on to find resilience and strength? 

Join Aurora Claire Borin and hear stories of joy, vulnerability, and family like you haven't heard before that celebrate the core of what it means to be queer. 

Whether you come seeking to hear things you've never heard before or celebrate in resonance, we would love your attendance.

Aurora's bio:

Aurora is a queer, geek, cosplayer, Wiccan priestess, gamer, animal lover, hobby cook, extreme Taurus, and avid reader.


Aurora is the Founding Director of Bow Valley DEI. She speaks and consults regularly with a variety of organizations and businesses about how to create spaces in which everybody truly belongs. She maintains a permanent position with the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides as their Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Mental Health Services Manager and applies this unique intersection of knowledge and experience to all of her DEI work.


She is a fierce advocate for 2SLGBTQ+ folks and has been privileged to speak before thousands at the Women's March on Calgary, as well as at Power of Being a Girl, Trans Day of Remembrance, International Women's Day, and many other important markers in the lives of girls, women, and 2SLGBTQ+communities. 


She is a community organizer who loves to create brave, comfortable, accountable moments that encourage all to be more than they thought they could be.


She is a successful career musician and is acclaimed throughout Calgary and the Bow Valley for her abilities as a collaborative pianist and educator. Her work has been described as brilliant, but more to her liking, she was once called a "Force of Nature".


Aurora lives in Banff, Alberta. Aurora is bi/pansexual and trans, though she prefers the label queer.
