Professionalization Series: Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) in Research Environments

When and Where

Friday, April 29, 2022 10:00 am to 11:30 am


Nicole Kaniki


This session will provide a foundational understanding of the basic concepts of EDI, and how systems of oppression operate in academia. We will discuss the challenges and barriers faculty, students, trainees and staff from underrepresented groups face in the research ecosystem which has led to the lack of diversity we see in these environments. Participants will be provided with principles and best practices of equity and inclusion, and how these can be embedded within the research environment.

Presented by Nicole Kaniki, U of T's first director of equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) in research and innovation.
