Panel on Homophobic Bullying on March 27

Homophobic Bullying

A discussion on Homophobic Bullying will be held at noon on March 27. All are invited to this meeting of the Allies at Dalhousie in room 224 of the Student Union Building.
Several days before this event a report on cyberbulling will be presented to the Nova Scotia Legislature, a report which is the initiative of the Nova Scotia Department of Education. Dr. Wayne MacKay of the Schulich School of Law at Dalhousie and the Chair of the Task Force on Cyberbullying, will be on the panel, together with three Dalhousie staff members who will report on how the university might deal with cases of homophobic bullying. The staff members include Gaye Wishart (Advisor, Harassment Prevention/Conflict Management), Jake MacIsaac (Community Safety Officer with Dalhousie Security), and Dianne Norman (Manager of Student Conflict Resolution). Marc Braithwaite (Assistant Vice President, Student Affairs) will facilitate the conversation.

  1. I commend all efforts on this bulling aspect that takes place in relationships such as doctor/patient - in fact any where that our vulnerability or justice is not known or acknowledged in professional status.
