Faculty and Staff

Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Week

The sessions offered during EDI Week create opportunities for faculty, staff, students, and guests to come together to raise awareness, foster passion, fuel commitment, and enhance knowledge and skills.

The first Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Week took place in 2014 after it had been proposed years earlier by Malinda Smith, Professor, Political Science and former member of the Employment Equity Advisory Committee. Since then, EDI Week continues to build momentum with increased attendance to certain events and recognized importance to issues surrounding equity, diversity and inclusion throughout campus. The overarching goal of the event and program itself is to bring faculty staff and students together to engage in learning and dialogue in an effort to address and put an end to social injustice.
