The 2017 Employment Equity Statistical Report for York University is now available and can be found at

The report highlights a statistical summary of the representation of the four designated groups: Women, Visible Minorities (Racialized), Aboriginal (Indigenous) Peoples and Persons with Disabilities; and also speaks to anticipated diversity and inclusion related initiatives for 2018 and beyond.

Examples of some diversity-related initiatives include:

  • Unconscious Bias Training for academic and non-academic selection/search committees – to remove the potential for bias in the selection, interview and hiring process;
  • Analysis and communication of visible minority (racialized) data for all groups to allow for an enhanced picture of visible minority (racialized) groups on campus.

“The University continues to explore ways to share new and up to date information on equity, diversity and inclusion with academic and non-academic units to ensure gaps and/or biases are addressed throughout the different elements of the employment life cycle such as talent acquisition, learning & development and promotions,” says Annette Boodram, equity, diversity & inclusion consultant.

“If you haven’t yet completed a Self-Identification 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 by going to the following link,” she adds.

Questions relating to employment equity, diversity & inclusion or this report can be directed to Boodram at or ext. 20848.
