The Inclusion Project, a one-day strategic dialogue to promote cultural understanding and inclusion, was featured in an article in the Goldstream News Gazette.

The project, created by Master of Arts in Intercultural and International Communication graduate Ruth Mojeed, was held at Royal Roads University March 30.

Here is an excerpt:

The event drew a large crowd – with everyone from local politicians to students at the university – and had them talking together about challenges faced by newcomers like immigrants, refugees and international students.

‘This is a forum for stakeholders across public and private sectors, post-secondary, civil society, business and government to come together and talk about things around diversity, equity and inclusiveness,’  said Ruth Mojeed, organizer of the event. ‘It’s about what that looks like to us, what are some of the challenges we have around those things and what is the way forward.’
