Greetings, readers from the Fanshawe community and beyond. Welcome to the Diversity issue.

While preparing this issue I asked my writers to think about what diversity means to them. It takes all kinds of people to make up this world, and so the content I received reflects an array of perspectives. You’ll find articles tackling topics such as Pride history, combating ableism, and the concept of the Canadian cultural mosaic, among others.

In news, we have coverage on the Centre for Research and Innovation’s new cannabis research license, and a new burger restaurant opened by a graduate of Fanshawe’s occupation- specific language training (OSLT) program. We also have all the information you need on how to submit climate change-inspired poetry, prose and artwork to a new publication created by a Western University professor.

Listen live on

Our opinion section includes pieces on what it’s like to have a learning disability as an adult, diversity at the Oscars, and the efficacy of the Bell Let’s Talk campaign.

In lifestyles, we have pieces on how Pride month is marketed at Fanshawe, as well as a look at the history of interracial dating and what it means to be subject to the “glass elevator” effect in the workplace.

In sports you’ll find our coverage on the Bell Let’s Talk volleyball event, and last weekend’s Falcons Fest.

That’s it for now, folks. Thanks as always for reading, and be sure to keep tabs on us throughout the week on our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages.

And so it goes,

Angela McInnes
