What more can Manitoba’s “most powerful” do to open the door to diversity?

Tomorrow I will be participating in the next Visionary Conversation event, hosted by the University of Manitoba, which is to be held at the Winnipeg Art Gallery. 

Visionary Conversations is a series of events that covers topics relevant to the community, such as scandals in Canadian politics and the value of post-secondary education.  The topic of conversation that I will be partaking in will be minorities’ and non-Manitobans’ access to Manitoba’s “inner circles”. 

I will have the honour and privilege of conversing with a group of esteemed panelists, including Sharon Harrald, Vice-President of HR, Investors Group, Melanie D. Janzen, Associate Dean (Undergraduate Studies), Faculty of Education, Janice Y. Lederman, President, Innovate Manitoba, and Mary Jane Loustel, IBM National Aboriginal Program Executive.
