An opinion article for my storytelling community Adventures in Storytelling; diversity is important to me, but being a white, middle-class, cis-gender, heterosexual man I often struggle with how much is appropriate for me to engage with areas with which I don't identify—this is an exploration into that idea.
An opinion article for RyersonStudentAffairs.com / Canadian Association of Colleges and Universities Student Affairs (CACUSS); a Student Affairs professional from another institution wrote an article about a lack of "Canadian conversations" which spurred me to talk with my colleagues and CACUSS, then write this response and launch a project to try and create spaces for these Canadian SA conversations.
An instructional article for RyersonStudentAffairs.com / ACPA; I was asked to put together an article to help instruct my colleagues, both at Ryerson and across Student Affairs in Canada, on the best practices for writing a program proposal for the ACPA conference 2016, which was going to be held in Canada for the first time ever.
