Walk a Mile: Experiencing and Understanding Diversity in Canada is the first text of its kind to combine both cognitive and affective dimensions of studying diversity. It does so through an experiential framework that encourages self-reflection on the part of the reader, while providing a strong foundation in the history of diversity in Canada. Using as its starting point the notion that creating a more just, inclusive society requires each of us to figuratively and empathetically walk a mile in the shoes of others, the self-reflexive framework of Walk a Mile facilitates the development of diversity competencies, equipping students to work and live effectively with people from a wide variety of cultural, religious, economic, sexual, and age backgrounds.
