We’re number one
RRC is climbing the ranks when it comes to research.
Research Infosource released their Canada’s Top 50 Research Colleges 2015 list and RRC crept up the scoreboard twice.
RRC is number one in the research partnership growth category and ranked eighth overall.
This is the third year in a row RRC has placed in the top 10 of the annual ranking.
RRC also increased its ranking in total number of research partnerships from 12 to 6, and total number of research projects from 15 to 11.
Remembrance at the museum
The Canadian Museum for Human Rights is planning a day of special free events for Remembrance Day. On Nov. 11 beginning at 1 p.m., guests can spend the afternoon writing letters to veterans, which upon request can be delivered to a local veteran’s association. Guests can also participate in a forgiveness activity, Mend a Broken Heart. The craft is meant to teach the importance of forgiveness by breaking a heart, then mending it back together.
At 7 p.m., a special presentation will be in the Stuart Clark Garden of Contemplation. The presentation will reflect on balancing ideas of remembrance and respect within the context of human rights. All Remembrance Day activities are free with admission.
HR rep earns spot on new provincial council
RRC’s workplace equity and diversity co-ordinator Suenita Maharaj-Sandhu has been appointed to serve on the new Manitoba Advisory Council on Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism.
The provincial council is a combination of the Manitoba Immigration Council and the Manitoba Ethnocultural Advisory and Advocacy Council. The new group is meant to help newcomers to Manitoba achieve success.
Maharaj-Sandhu was recommended to the council due to the extensive work she has done with organizations and individuals pursuing inclusion and diversity.
Maharaj-Sandhu will serve alongside members of the Winnipeg Police Service, the Manitoba Islamic Association, the Immigrant Centre Manitoba and the Manitoba Institute of Trades and Technology.
