How and why does diversity have a positive impact on revenue and productivity in Cana­dian workplaces? Can the Canadian experi­ence with diversity be replicated in ether na­tional settings? Join us to hear Canadian scholars Bessma Momani and Jillian Stirk discuss these and eth­er questions as they present the findings of their study Diversity Dividend Canada's Global Advantage (published by the Centre for Inter­national Governance Innovation, Waterloo, Canada, and The Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foun­dation, 2017). Following their presentation, Momani and Stirk will be joined by a group of AU academics in a Q & A session focussing on how the findings and recommendations of this Canadian study could be understood and applied in the Dan­ish context. All are welcome. Refreshments will be served. Sponsored by the Canadian Studies Centre (Dept. of English, School of Communiciation and Culture, Aarhus University) and the Em­bassy of Canada in Copenhagen, Denmark.
