Abstract

On February 13, as part of our You Belong Here campaign, the University of Regina will host Hadiya Roderique at a free event open to the entire community. As a young, black woman working as a lawyer on Bay Street, Hadiya Roderique delivered a wake-up call to corporate Canada in the form of her Globe and Mail feature essay, "Black on Bay Street." Roderique's think piece sparked discussion in boardrooms across Canada. In her thought-provoking talks, she discusses barriers and challenges to diversity and inclusion, and counters those common arguments to show the power of a diverse and inclusive workplace.
