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. Two new feedback sessions, May 11 and 12, have been added to the schedule.

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. Two new feedback sessions have been added to the schedule. The first session for employees (faculty, course instructors and staff) will take place May 11 at 2:30 p.m. The second session for students (undergraduate and graduate) will take place on May 12 at 4 p.m. In addition to attending the feedback sessions, community members are also encouraged to complete a survey about the Draft EDI Strategy. The survey will remain open until May 13.

The President’s Advisory Council on Equity, Diversity and Inclusion will use the community feedback to help identify opportunities and issues in the Draft EDI Strategy. The feedback will help the council complete and launch the finalized EDI Strategy this summer.
