The 2011 Employment Equity Report for York University is now available online.

The report highlights the designated group representation at York University and activities related to employment equity that took place during the 2011 calendar year. The report also speaks to anticipated employment equity related initiatives for 2012 and beyond.

In summary, the report shows that the University has no areas of under representation within any of the four designated groups, which are women, visible minorities, Aboriginal peoples and persons with disabilities. There are smaller pockets of under representation among non-academic sub-groups of employees at the Employment Equity Occupational Group level. Appendix “C” of the report outlines where under representation exists.

Internal representation figures are determined by aggregating the individual results of the Self-Identification Survey.

“If you haven’t yet completed this survey, or your responses have changed (for example, a disability has emerged since you last filled out the survey), we encourage you to take one minute to complete this survey at this time,” says Annette Boodram, employment equity officer.
