The President’s Advisory Council on Equity, Diversity and Inclusion released its Draft Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Strategy (EDI) on March 21 and is seeking input from community members.
The Draft EDI Strategy reflects York University’s long-standing commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion and aims to continue to foster an equitable, diverse, and inclusive community where everyone feels they belong. For more details, read a message to the community from Vice-President Equity, People and Culture Sheila Cote-Meek on the release of the Draft EDI Strategy.
Community members are encouraged to review the Draft EDI Strategy and attend open feedback sessions, which continue to run through to April 28. There are still spots available for community members to attend and confidentiality is ensured for all participants. There will be sessions in English and French.
Community members are also encouraged to complete a survey about the Draft EDI Strategy. The survey will remain open until May 13.
The Council needs this community feedback to help identify issues and opportunities in the Draft EDI Strategy which will help the Council in its work to finalize and launch the finalized EDI Strategy by summer 2022.
