NSERC's Senior Policy Advisor on EDI will provide an overview of the agency's EDI-related initiatives, with a specific focus on the made-in-Canada version of the UK Athena SWAN program being launched to encourage and recognize commitments made by post-secondary institutions towards advancing equity, diversity and inclusion in the research community. This program is broader in scope than what has been done so far in other countries. All post-secondary institutions will be invited to participate (universities, colleges, CÉGEPs, polytechnics), the program will encompass all academic disciplines, and it is inclusive of all underrepresented and disadvantaged groups (including, but not limited to women, Indigenous Peoples, persons with disabilities, visible minority/racialized groups and members of LGBT2Q+ communities). Following a short presentation the speaker will welcome questions from the audience.
