Integrating Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Indigenization (EDII) in Research

Queen’s University is committed to advancing the principles of Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Indigenization (EDII) in all aspects of research including the production of knowledge, equitable access to funding opportunities, and inclusive and diverse research team composition. The University recognizes that EDII policies and practices strengthen the research community, as well as the quality, social relevance, outcomes, and impacts of research. Researchers are expected to follow all applicable institutional policies, procedures and practices supporting EDII and advancing its goals within the University.

Queen’s University has proudly endorsed the Government of Canada's Dimensions: Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Canada  charter. Dimensions Canada is a national program to increase EDI within Canada's post-secondary institutions and the university research ecosystem.

Research Services has compiled a “toolkit” of useful EDII resources to help our research and innovation community implement EDII policies and practices into their respective research programs, projects and research environments.
