We believe equity, diversity and inclusion is about creating a culture that embraces the uniqueness of individuals.
Equity means that people of all identities are treated fairly. Their individual rights, responsibilities and opportunities are not dependent upon identity.
Diversity consists of the conditions, expressions, and experiences of different individuals. It encompasses the unique qualities and characteristics that we all possess.
Inclusion is the cultivation of an environment in which all people are respected, where their differences are embraced, and where they all have access to the same opportunities.
We value equity, diversity, and inclusion because every person has a right to equal treatment, and we are strengthened by diverse backgrounds, perspectives, and experiences. We will continuously address issues related to equity-seeking groups that include, but are not limited to, those represented by race, sex, age, physical disabilities, sexual orientation, gender identity, neurodiversity, and socioeconomic status.
In the spirit of reconciliation, we will also strive to develop and enhance existing Indigenous relationships.
We will actively work to recognize, develop and promote initiatives towards equity, diversity, and inclusion in our training, hiring and promotion policies, and organized events. We will provide ally ship, mentorship, and sponsorship to ensure that all members of our department are treated in a fair and ethical manner and are supported in their path to success.
