Bashir Mohamed, a former EDI.I Coordinator in the APSC EDI.I Office, gave a talk focused on Black Canadian history and how the history relates to our disciplines in Applied Science. Bashir has an interest in Black Canadian history and hopes to build awareness around the history of our professions and how we may reconcile with the legacy of the past.
