Leland Harper is an educator, author, speaker, and lifelong learner with strong ties to the hospitality industry. His drive in the industry was fueled by his love for meeting new people. Today, Leland is a professor of philosophy, specializing in philosophy of race. His work on racism and his experience in the hospitality industry led him to start working with bars and nightclubs to address issues related to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Currently, Leland is working with several major universities in Canada and the US to establish justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion course offerings for degree-seeking and non degree-seeking students, with several Canadian charities and non-profits to design and create virtual antiracist learning opportunities for Canadian youth, and with an academic publishing house as editor of their newly-established Philosophy of Race series.
