Equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) are at the heart of CANSSI’s work to foster collaborative, interdisciplinary research teams and partnerships. This community consultation will set the direction for CANSSI’s ongoing approach to EDI.
We have taken the first steps toward developing an active EDI program and schedule of activities. Our next priority is to establish an EDI committee to develop, operate, and evaluate our EDI initiatives over the long term. We will also rely on the committee to help us develop an EDI vision statement.
We need your help to define the nature and role of this committee and are planning a Community Consultation on EDI in Fall 2023 to consider how committee members should be selected, what kinds of programs they could develop, and how to approach the definition of a vision statement.
We will share details about the event and how you can participate when they are ready, and we look forward to your perspectives.
