The article reflects on the author's view on making the academic workplace a more humane environment. It also discusses insights of writer Linda Kerber regarding the issue. According to Franca Iacovetta, a more humane workplace is for both good and bad reasons and she concluded that the help of the Canadian scholars in considering a more humanistic academic workplace is possible by making it a racially inclusive place for everyone in the academy.
