Women are still not counted as part of the 10 people who must be present before prayers can begin. Only men count. I have had the extraordinary experience of sitting in a chapel and watching the leader of prayers count the men in the room, his eyes sliding over me as he counted. For all intents and purposes, not only did I not count, I was invisible.
Is Diversity Important?
America is sizably made up of immigrants, and it is not surprising that diversity has become a watchword. Whether in a workplace, in social meetings, or in public behavior, we are constantly reminded and admonished that diversity is what makes an institution, a country and this world a great place to live and work in.

Multicultural Days: An International Perspective is the second multicultural conference to be held at Brock University. On November 13, 2002, the Canadian Government announced that Canadian Multiculturalism Day would be held every year on June 27 as part of the “Celebrating Canada!” schedule of events. Based on this announcement, the first conference took the name “Multicultural Days” and was rescheduled to coincide with the first Canadian Multiculturalism Day on June 27, 2003. The purpose of that conference was to explore the ways that Canadians
conceptualize, experience, understand, discuss, and employ strategies to address
multiculturalism and racism in Canada. The first conference also led to the development of an ebook,“Perspectives on Multiculturalism”, that is available on the conference website.
