It is important to talk about diversity and inclusion, but our actions need to support our words. We value diversity in Toronto and see it as an asset. Inclusion, however, remains a challenge and many of our diverse population experience barriers each day. The way to address this challenge is extending our empathy. At the Inclusive Design Institute, we work on understanding the impact of design in everyday life. We believe that design for all of us begins with design for each of us. In this walk, we are going to mull over the largest underground shopping complex in the world and consider how it does and does not meet diverse needs.

"While honey bees get most of the credit, a considerable amount of agricultural pollination is performed by wild bees. In Toronto, backyard fruits and vegetables are pollinated mostly by wild bees. So, it is a good thing that there are over 350 species living within the GTA" - Bees of Toronto: A Guide to their Remarkable World, City of Toronto
