Course Description

A diversity statement communicates an educator or researcher’s commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) and how they would translate these values into their practice within a post-secondary context. This statement also includes your understanding of systemic inequities and challenges equity-deserving groups face based on race, class, gender, sexual orientation, age, and (dis)abilities. In addition to highlighting your skills and experiences in this area, the purpose of a diversity statement is to express your commitment and ability to contribute to an institution or department’s vision and efforts toward attaining equity, diversity, and inclusion. Through this statement, you outline your understanding of the challenges faced by underrepresented groups in post-secondary contexts and how you aim to contest those challenges through equitable and inclusive practices.

Through this interactive session, participants will:

  • Reflect on their beliefs and values related to EDI
  • Identify strategies of how they have applied EDI in their teaching and pedagogical practice, ways to assess its impact, and their aspirations for the future
  • Develop a preliminary draft of their EDI statement

Please note: Registration will close 48 hours before each workshop. Participants will receive relevant Zoom information via email at least 1 hour before the designated start time.
