The Harjit Kaur Sidhu Memorial Program, established in 2009
Celebrating Punjabi language and culture in British Columbia
The Harjit Kaur Sidhu Memorial Program celebrates the rich life of Punjabi language and culture in BC, in memory of a woman who shared such passions and commitments. It was established in loving memory of Harjit Kaur Sidhu (nee Gill), devoted wife, mother, and strong advocate for education, Punjabi culture and language, and women’s issues. The Program represents UBC’s opportunity to engage both with the University community of students and faculty and the wider public to celebrate diverse aspects of Punjabi language and culture in British Columbia, and to enhance public conversation on these topics.
