Dr. Elliot Chapple - Director, Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, and Indigenization
Dr. Chapple brings with him over 17 years of experience working within academia, community and government to the Director role. In 2017, after over a decade of working in higher education in the US, Dr. Chapple decided to return home to Canada. Since returning to Canada, Dr. Chapple has served as the Executive Director of Planned Parenthood, Senior Policy Advisor and Research Analyst for the Office of the Status of Women, and he continues to work with community-based research groups on queer and trans health issues.
Most recently, he was Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Specialist at the University of Ottawa Department of Medicine. His passion is working to ensure that marginalized populations are recognized through his work in policy, advocacy, and research; seeking to reduce inequities and improve outcomes for all. He works from an intersectional feminist anti-racist/anti-oppressive framework.
As the new Director, Dr. Chapple is responsible for taking the lead on proactive EDII initiatives. Supporting that first guiding principle in the Faculty’s Strategic Plan, equity, diversity, and inclusion, including anti-racism, decolonization, and Indigenous resurgence, these strategic initiatives will foster a learning and working environment where all have an opportunity to succeed.
Dr. Chapple will continue work on the FAS EDII needs assessment and develop an associated implementation plan that includes the creation of a mentoring program to retain new Black, Indigenous, and Persons of Colour (BIPOC) faculty members.
