Indigenous Initiatives (II) + Equity, Diversity, Inclusion (EDI) in Research

Indigenous Initiatives and Equity, Diversity, Inclusion in our research and innovation

The University of Alberta is committed to advancing Indigenous initiatives (II) and equity, diversity, inclusion (EDI) across our research and innovation ecosystem. Incorporating II + EDI strengthens our research programs and projects by harnessing a broader range of ideas, skills, expertise, perspectives and disciplines-which further enhances outcomes, impacts and social relevance and better reflects Canada's diversity, the diverse and globalized world we live and work in, and our responsibilities to the peoples and the lands where we live and work.

The university is proud to have been among the first signatories of the Government of Canada's Dimensions: Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Canada charter. Dimensions Canada is a national program to increase EDI within Canada's post-secondary institutions and the university research ecosystem.

The following information and resources are provided to help our research and innovation community implement II + EDI policies and practices into their respective research programs, projects and research environments:
