Virtual Workshop

The Office of the Vice-Principal Research in collaboration with the Human Rights and Equity Office proudly presented What is in your EDII toolkit? on December 9, 2021.


About this event:

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 tri-agencies have been integrating EDII considerations into their policies, processes, indicators of excellence and evaluation criteria as part of their commitment to equitable, diverse and inclusive research enterprise. The University recognizes that EDII policies and practices strengthen our research community, as well as the quality, social relevance, outcomes, and impacts of our research.
Listen to three EDII Champions from different disciplines describe what is part of their “EDII Toolkit” and reflect on the benefits, challenges and opportunities that incorporating EDII into all stages of their research affords. Please be prepared to bring all of your research-related EDII questions as there will be time allotted for an open Q&A session.
