York faculty, staff and students can earn REDI certificate this summer

The Centre for Human Rights, Equity & Inclusion (REI) at York University is launching its Respect, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (REDI) workshop series for Summer 2020. REDI aims to engage faculty, staff and students in valuable knowledge exchange through a series of educational and professional development opportunities.

REDI workshop

The virtual eight-session series emphasizes the importance of upholding human rights principles throughout campus, while championing equity and inclusion values. With effectively online teaching tools and facilitated dialogue, participants will reflect on policies, relevant experiences and case scenarios that will help them appreciate and apply their learning.

Participants who attend at least three sessions receive a certificate of recognition.

Community members can register and participate in sessions at any time of the year to count towards their certificate of completion in human rights. The full list of sessions is available on the REI website.
