Welcome to the Race and Ethnic Relations blog!

It took a while, but it is finally here.  Welcome to the Race and Ethnic Relations blog!

This is a safe space for members of the McGill community to discuss issues of equity and diversity at McGill, in Montréal, and in the world.  Regardless of how you arrived here, we are all McGillians, sharing experiences in a multi-ethnic and multicultural environment.  We hope that those experiences will be rich and rewarding, but the reality is that diversity can be challenging.

The purpose of this blog is to provide a space for sharing our experiences with diversity, to discuss events happening here and in the wider world that deal with issues of equity and diversity, and to create a forum for raising awareness and sharing resources to help foster a more inclusive and accepting community.

Everyone is welcome to participate.  If you have a story that you would like to share, contact me at

Note that we value open, honest discussion, but will not tolerate flaming of any kind.

Welcome aboard!  We look forward to hearing from you.

Adrienne Piggott

Chair, subcommittee on Race and Ethnic Relations
