Dr. Sulaimon Abiodun Olawale Giwa is a Nigerian-born Canadian citizen, and Canada-based educator, researcher, and scholar-activist, who works at the intersection of forensic social work and LGBTQ+ studies. He completed his Diploma in Law and Security Administration with a specialization in Police Education from Fleming College in 1999. He received a Bachelor of High Honours in Criminology and Criminal Justice with a concentration in Law and a minor in Women’s Studies in 2004, and a Masters of Social Work in Social Policy and Administration in 2006, both from Carleton University. He earned his PhD in Social Work from York University in the specialty areas of Race, Ethnicity, and Culture in 2017.

Dr. Giwa joined the faculty at Memorial University in 2017, where he is an Assistant Professor and Associate Dean of Undergraduate Programs in the School of Social Work, with a cross-appointment to the Department of Sociology (Police Studies). He is the Endowed Chair in Criminology and Criminal Justice at St. Thomas University, and is an antiracism, equity, diversity, and inclusion trainer and consultant. Before coming to Memorial University, he taught in the social work programs at Ryerson University and York University, and in the Police Foundations program at Sheridan College.

Dr. Giwa’s professional experience includes research and policy work at the community and federal levels, antiracist community and organizational change, and direct practice in diverse contexts, including policing and corrections. He has worked with coalition movements against police racial profiling for over a decade. He led the first community and multiagency responses to racial profiling in policing in Ottawa, Ontario. He has developed, coordinated, and implemented several educational workshops and training programs for police, health and social service providers, and the general public, to address issues of systemic racism in policing, enhance civic participation, and develop cultural sensitivity. Dr. Giwa has advocated for and worked with public-safety partner agencies and with incarcerated and formerly incarcerated service users and their families, facilitating the successful reintegration of these individuals back into their communities. He has also provided individual and group solution-focused brief counselling to at-risk youth experiencing challenging life situations, including cofacilitating an anger management program (Keeping It Cool) for male youths referred by the courts, the education system, and social/health agencies providing services to youth.

Dr. Giwa’s academic and applied-research program centralizes critical race transformative pedagogies and human rights theories as frameworks and analytic tools for social justice and equity. His research interests are in the areas of critical race and anti-Black racism; race and sexuality; LGBTQ+ migration, settlement, and integration; intersectional stigma and human rights; minority stress and coping; critical social work pedagogy; and the criminal justice system. Students, cognate faculties, community organizations, and government agencies frequently seek his policy and program development knowledge; his expertise in teaching and interdisciplinary content; and his supervision and mentorship for help in their practice. He is a member of the National Advisory Committee to Address Anti-Black Racism in Research and Research Training Programs, for the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC); a member of the African, Caribbean, and Black National Expert Working Group, Rapid Assessment of the Impact of COVID-19 on STBBI Care and Prevention, Public Health Agency of Canada; and a member of the National Guideline Development Expert Advisory Committee for SOGIESC/LGBTQIA+ Newcomers and Refugees. He is a principal investigator and co-principal investigator on several research and public engagement projects, which have received funding from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada; SSHRC; Dobbin Atlantic Scholarship Programme, Ireland Canada University Foundation; New Brunswick Law Foundation; and the Office of Public Engagement, Memorial University. He has published widely in peer-reviewed academic journals and in alternative venues, such as newspapers and magazines, and presented over 40 referred papers at local, national, and international conferences and meetings. He sits on the editorial advisory board for the Canadian Journal of Human Sexuality.

Dr. Giwa is an active member and participant in university and community life. He is part of numerous university committees, including the Research Advisory Committee on Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion, and is the co-chair of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences Anti-Racism Committee at Memorial University. His leadership also extends to being the convener for the Research Exchange Group on Gender, Sexuality, and Health at the Newfoundland and Labrador Centre for Applied Health Research. In addition to his university committee work, he is the chair of the City of St. John’s Anti-Racism Working Group; the co-chair of the City of St. John’s Inclusion Advisory Committee; the co-lead of the Training and Education subcommittee of the Anti-Racism Coalition of Newfoundland and Labrador; a member of the City of St. John’s Ad Hoc Budget Strategy Committee; an Advisory Board Member with Relationships First—Restorative Justice Education, Newfoundland and Labrador Consortium/Centre; and a Board Member with Quadrangle Community Centre of Newfoundland and Labrador, among others.

Dr. Giwa’s life’s work is driven by an acute sense of equity and social justice, which is matched by his commitment to a collaborative, community, strengths-based approach to knowledge generation for the implementation of policy, practice, and system-level changes.
