Whose Diversity Is It Anyway? & Presentation of CIAJ Justice Medal by The Honourable Justice Patrick Healy (1:35:54)
3:00 – 4:45 pm Whose Diversity Is It Anyway?
One could conclude from reading the newspaper reports that we have widely divergent views on what diversity means. Is this so? This panel will explore that question in the context of such questions as: What are “Canadian values?” How diverse are we? How much have we changed since the Confederation? Since 1982? What do we mean by diversity? How do we make sense of the various ways in which diversity is discussed? This panel will look at these questions from the disciplines of psychology, sociology and law.
