President's Task Force on Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion
A President’s Task Force on Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) has been established to provide recommendations on the process and actions required to identify and examine obstacles and inequities facing faculty, staff and students at the University of Manitoba.
Chaired by Vice-Provost (Academic Affairs) Diane Hiebert-Murphy, the task force includes senior leaders, faculty members, students and staff members, as well as resource members drawn from relevant units of the University. The committee will provide an interim report by May 2020, with a final report and recommendations by September 2020 to the President and Vice-Presidents.
EDI community experiences survey
A survey has been created to better understand UM community experiences of diversity, inclusion and equity.
If you are a student, or faculty or staff member, please complete this EDI community experiences survey, if you have not already done so, and lend your voice to this important work.
The survey is open until June 1, 2020. All respondents are eligible to enter a draw to win one of ten $100 Amazon.ca gift cards.
The survey will inform the task force’s recommendations.
EDI Community Consultation
NOTE: All in-person focus groups have been paused due to the Covid-19 situation, but you can respond to any or all of the focus group questions online or share your personal experiences in our EDI online survey. All online responses are anonymous, unless you choose to include your name and contact information.
Students, staff and faculty are invited to participate in consultations for the President’s Task Force on Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI). The question guiding this work is: What is needed to ensure that EDI principles are embraced and supported within the UM community?
Focus groups will be held during February, March and April at the Fort Garry, Bannatyne and Selkirk Avenue campuses. A list of dates, times and locations can be found below. If you are a member of a community on campus that would like to host a focus group, please contact EDI@umanitoba.ca.
If you require accommodation to support your participation, please email EDI@umanitoba.ca.
If you are unable to attend a focus group but would like to provide your input, you can respond to any or all of the focus group questions online. All online responses are anonymous, unless you choose to include your name and contact information.
