Diversity : Multilinguism, identity and the reality of women doctoral students


With Margarida Garcia and Lydie C. Belporo




Margarida Garcia talks with Lydie C. Belporo, 2021 Scholar, lawyer and criminologist of Cameroonian origin who is actively serving her peers, women doctoral students. Ms. Belporo recounts the fascination she felt when she first came to Canada and discovered Indigenous languages. With 200 vernacular languages, Cameroon would benefit from valuing its own linguistic wealth. She also praises the opportunities for people in Canada to learn French or English through language immersion programs. She invites our leaders to allocate all possible resources to promote social unity and inclusion, and institutions such as the media to put forward actors from diversity.
