Diversity Resources

There is lots of talk these days about diversity and employability. Companies and organizations understand the value of having a diverse workforce. Many Employers have a diversity program whereby they offer equal opportunity to diverse groups, such as, people with disabilities, visible minorities, first nations, and queer people.

Diversity is something that impacts all of us whether we come from a minority group or not. Although diversity is seen as a positive thing for the most part, there are still, barriers, and difficulties that individuals from various groups may be faced with. It is crucial to be informed and understand our rights as well as have access to valuable resources and information.

We at the Career and Placement Service (CAPS) recognize the importance of addressing diversity in all its forms with regard to our student body and in relation to the workforce. As a result of our commitment to this area we have developed a great collection of books, magazines and web links, as well as, appointing a diversity advisor to oversee this portfolio.

The diversity advisor provides individual sessions, workshops on various topics as well as organizes panel discussions and discussion groups. For more information please consult the CAPS website or the Diversity Advisor, Cindy Mancuso.
