‘Now people can see themselves’: Dalhousie researchers, community members, and alumni create diverse image library
The Diversity Exchange was created when School of Physiotherapy assistant professor Dr. Caitlin McArthur was looking for images for presentations for her class and noticed there was a big lack of diversity in currently available stock photos. She says they were mainly white people who looked affluent and in good health, and were often doing ineffective exercises or exercises incorrectly. It became clear she wanted to create an ethnoculturally diverse image library for her and others in the profession so diverse students could be represented.
