eMbracing DiVerSiTYIts no surprise Canada is one of the most di-verse countries in the world. And, as Canadians, were blessed with the notion that we can bring our whole selves everywhere we go, whether its to school, around friends, and around strangers.
Once post-secondary is behind you and you start to venture into the real world, youll see that di-versity extends into your next major pit stop: the workplace. Over the last decade (and still count-ing), a number of Canadas top companies have made efforts to not only push diverse workspaces
for their employees, but also to celebrate it.
Through training programs, internal resources, advertisingyou name itthese companies are implementing strategies to make both a positive and supportive environment. In this issue, well be looking further into diversity at work. In our aboriginal report, we look at how upcoming ab-original professionals are making an impact in their communities. Our LGBT pieces focus on diversity training programs and raising aware-ness through allies. For women in leadership, we explore how young women are emerging into fields often dominated by men. And finally, in disability, we look at student resources, cor-porate diversity practices, and learn one mans
story of disaster-turned-triumph.
Get ready for a jam-packed issue filled with every-thing you need to know about our diverse, work-ing Canadians and the companies that embrace them. And, in addition, well get you started on career planning by sharing our industry snippets,
tips for attending career fairs, and much more.
