Equity, Diversity and Inclusivity

In the Alberta School of Business, we are committed to weaving equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) into the fabric of our culture.


Message from the Assistant Dean, EDI

I’m very excited to be in the role of Assistant Dean, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion. I’m committed to nurturing an environment where all members of our community can thrive, reach their full potential, and where barriers and biases are removed. I care about our students' experiences and want them to feel supported and see themselves reflected in what we do.

~ Dr. Michelle Inness

EDI is central to good business practice.

It is an essential foundation for teamwork that supports local entrepreneurship and a thriving global business community. Business functions better when we remove biases and barriers that prevent people from fully contributing. Businesses, in turn, are critical in the promotion of a more diverse, equitable, accessible, and inclusive world.

EDI is also central to learning.

A thriving learning environment, like a thriving business environment, is one that is a safe place to explore a variety of ideas, perspectives and world-views.

We will work together as mutual teachers and learners to advance EDI.
