Queen's faculty members are invited to learn how to develop an action plan to embed equity, diversity, and inclusion in research programs and practices through a hands-on, in-person, full-day workshop.

A continental breakfast, buffet lunch and refreshments will be provided.

At this workshop, participants will have an opportunity to learn:

  • a logical approach to designing an action plan that addresses EDI in their research practice.
  • ways to communicate all elements of the plan clearly and succinctly, by drawing from SMART principles (i.e., specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, time-bound),  and results-based management approaches.

While the facilitators Aleksandra Bergier (Research Advisor, EDII, VPR Portfolio) and Leela Viswanathan (Viswali Consulting) will briefly address the importance of EDI in research design (also known as SGBA+), the primary focus of the workshop is EDI in research practice (e.g., team composition and recruitment, training and development opportunities and inclusion, etc.).

Researchers who are at different stages of their EDI journeys will benefit from learning about how to translate their intentions for EDI into activities that lead to measurable outcomes and that keep researchers accountable.  Participants will be encouraged to draw from their action plans as a point of reference when they develop funding applications and conduct strategic planning.
