I Count Equity Census Overview

Your Participation

This census is about you. Only you can count yourself in!  Completing the Census as soon as you can demonstrates your personal commitment to equity and fairness at Queen's.   It is about you helping us to ensure that accurate information on the composition of the workforce is collected at Queen's.  As a new employee to the University, you will receive your ICOUNT Queen's Equity Census within your first few weeks.

Filling in the information is voluntary but the Federal Contractors Program requires the form be returned. However, if you complete the self-identification questionnaire attached, as fully and accurately as possible, you will ensure that we have accurate information on our workforce.

How Does Your Participation Help Meet Our Commitment to Employment Equity?

The participation of every employee is important in helping to:

  • Achieve an accurate profile of who we are and how representative we are of the Canadian workforce
  • Identify areas where changes in policies, practices, and systems are likely to be most effective in achieving fairness in equity and employment
  • Pinpoint where we need to eliminate barriers that limit or exclude designated groups (Indigenous Peoples, persons with disabilities, racialized/visible minorities and women) from opportunities that should be open to all employees

What do I Need to do to Participate?

Completing the Census will only take a moment of your time and is completely confidential.  To complete the Census, use your netid and follow the following link:   ICOUNT Queen's Equity Census
