Interesting Read 

Diversity can be defined in many ways. At the Diversity Institute (DI), we focus our efforts on historically disadvantaged groups—women and non-binary individuals, Black people and other racialized people, Indigenous Peoples, persons with disabilities, and 2SLGBTQ+ individuals. We also explore the barriers and enablers impacting specific populations, such as immigrants and refugees, marginalized youth, Muslim women, and low-income workers.
Ryerson University has come out with its 2021 Diversity Report. To learn more check out their webpage at:
