R4R@Q Webinar Series - Introduction to Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in Research Design


Wednesday March 30, 2022
10:00 am - 11:30 am


Virtual Workshop

The Vice-Principal Research Portfolio (VPR) proudly presents the webinar “Introduction to Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) in Research Design”.

The process of embedding principles of equity, diversity, and inclusion in research design is an iterative one that requires a combination of self-awareness, reflection, and action to develop research questions, methods, and approaches to data collection, knowledge mobilization, knowledge translation, and data management.

About this Event:

This is the first in a series of three webinars to support researchers at every stage of their careers to embed EDI in their research practices. This series is closely tied to the online EDI in Research training modules that were developed for the Queen’s research community by the Human Rights and Equity Office and Vice-Principal Research Portfolio.  These asynchronous modules can be accessed from the VPR Portfolio website: Integrating EDII in Research.

At this webinar, participants will:

  1. Listen to a short presentation highlighting key components and questions for researchers to consider how to embed equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) in research design.
  2. Network with colleagues from across the Queen’s research community to exchange knowledge about their experiences with embedding EDI in research design, including wise practices, the various challenges that may emerge, and the techniques used to work through them. 
  3. Explore actions to begin to implement or to further enhance how to embed EDI principles in research design. 
  4. Engage in a brief discussion period with fellow participants and webinar facilitators.

In order to make the most of this webinar, all participants are strongly encouraged (but not required) to complete “Module 1: Introduction to Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) in Research Design ”, an online professional development module prior to attending this webinar. This webinar is open to all members of the Queen’s community involved in any aspect of research at Queen’s.
