Supporting Gender Diversity + Inclusion in the Workplace

Words: Diversity makes all of us strong

The university promotes a psychologically healthy and safe, inclusive work environment where all members can feel a genuine sense of purpose, connection and belonging.

The workplace has come a long way over the past several decades in the journey towards inclusion and understanding. However there is still much work to be done in ensuring we have a diverse, welcoming, healthy and safe workplace where individuals can thrive as their authentic selves.

As articulated in our Strategic Plan for EDI;

“The university's commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusivity is reflected in recruitment, retention, and advancement of faculty and staff; faculty and staff are prepared to work in a diverse environment and to have the knowledge and skills to contribute to equity and inclusivity.”

The plan suggests that in order to maximize efforts and uphold these values we utilize a community approach.

Leaders play an integral role in shaping our community by modeling behaviour and supporting a diverse environment inclusive of 2SLGBTQ+ faculty and staff members.
