From reconciliation to race relations to the #MeToo movement, Canada faces crucial challenges of diversity and inclusion. The Department of Political Science invites you to the annual UTM Public Affairs Lecture to learn how Senator Ratna Omidvar's personal story has influenced her pioneering work on diversity/inclusion and immigration/refugee policy. This session will be moderated by Professor Erin Tolley, an expert on immigration, race and Canadian politics.
