The BCIT Faculty and Staff Association (FSA) reached out to Kharé Communications to document their groundbreaking Diversity Circles program. The program utilizes an Indigenous framework to aid in the engagement of staff and students with regards to an increasingly diverse community at BCIT.

Our team interviewed the creative minds behind the Diversity Circles program over the course of several days, meeting with people like Andrew Judge and Aaron Nelson-Moody (also known as the artist Splash) who helped shed light on why an Indigenous framework is such an appropriate model to be using. Everyone we spoke to at BCIT was fully open to us on what diversity means to them, and how they are working to bring inclusivity to the forefront of their educational practice.

Stories of cultural diversity and education are some of the most important that need to be told, and we are proud to have been a part of the BCITFSA's efforts in this respect. We will continue to chase these stories that open dialogues that positively impact our communities here in British Columbia and beyond.
