When hearing about the initiatives underway at Dalhousie University in Halifax, it’s pretty clear why the school is among Canada’s Best Diversity Employers 2013, a list compiled by Mediacorp Canada.

One of the university’s greatest strengths is its holistic view of diversity issues, according to Lisa DeLong, human rights and equity advisor at Dalhousie.

“This means more than looking at short-term measures but also through creating pathway programs for youth and students, for ensuring multiple sources of support for inclusion… (and) very strong support for diversity from senior levels in the institution.”
