May 21st marks the World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development, as recognized by the United Nations. The Intercultural Centre took part in this international day by inviting the College community to “Do One Thing” on campus to improve diversity and inclusivity. Individuals from all areas of the College came to share their ideas, on a large scroll, which will be on display at the Intercultural Centre at a later date. Some of the responses included:
- Reimagining classroom spaces to honor kinesthetic, tactile, and experiential learning
- Develop an intercultural buddy program
- Organize an information session and dialogue around stereotypes in the media
- Start tweeting to trend #letsallgetalong - Encourage College events to begin with honoring the First Nations land upon which the College is built
- Have events to show that culture and diversity are more than just where you are from. Culture can be found in your workplace, in your abilities, your generation, your interests, or even in your family unit. Rethink culture!
