A President’s Task Force on Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) was established in October 2019 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 provided an interim report to the President and Vice-Presidents in May 2020, and will provide a final report and recommendations in December 2020.

The pandemic has intensified inequities impacting Indigenous, Black and racialized communities as well as people with disabilities and members of the 2SLGBTQ+ and student communities. A new handbook for equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) during COVID-19 has been created to connect students, staff and faculty to university and community supports.
