Provost's Advisory Group on Employment Equity (PAGEE)

The Provost's Advisory Group on Employment Equity includes the Offices of Human Resources, the Office of the Provost and Vice-Principal (Academic) and Equity Services, as well as appropriate representation from the Queen's community. It exists to better inform the process of developing and implementing special measures to address the gaps identified in the Queen's FCP workforce analysis for consideration by senior officers of the University.


The mandate of the Group is to address gaps in Queen's compliance with the FCP requirements and responsibilities by developing recruitment and employment strategies to improve the University's ability to attract, retain, develop, and reward highly qualified and talented employees from the four designated groups.

In order to achieve and maintain a representative workforce, the responsibilities include:

  1. To strategize around actionable changes to eliminate barriers to the hiring, selection, promotion and training of designated group members.
  2. To ensure the implementation of special measures and actions to support the achievement of a representative workforce.
  3. To develop initiatives that would create a favourable work climate to support the successful inclusion and retention of members of the designated groups.

The Provost's Advisory Group on Employment Equity should include members representing:

  • Equity Services
  • Human Resources
  • The Office of the Provost and Vice-Principal (Academic)

Equity Services may work with an FCP Advisory Board which should include members representing the five equity seeking groups. (Indigenous peoples, persons with disabilities, women, members of visible minorities/racialized groups and members of the LGTBQ communities)
