An inclusive culture benefits everyone.
Information from self-declaration surveys provides us with a greater understanding of the current composition of our faculty and staff and helps to inform the development of future equity, diversity and inclusion strategies. Ultimately, our goal is to enhance our work and learning environment and create spaces where every individual is respected and valued.
We know that both the way people self-identify and people's comfort level in providing this information can change over time. Because of this, you can update your information at any time through VIP-JUMP. You can also request a hard copy of the Workplace Diversity Self-Declaration form by contacting Valerie Williams, Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Facilitator, at Valerie.Williams@umanitoba.ca.
The University of Manitoba has a fundamental commitment to Indigenous achievement and reconciliation and a pledge to recognizing our rich and diverse community.
The new self-declaration survey builds on the University’s ongoing commitment to increase student, staff, faculty and leadership diversity that reflects society, to enhance our work and learning environment and to create a university campus where every individual is respected and valued. We respect our differences, celebrate our commonalities and unite in our pursuit to inspire minds and drive discovery.
A strong community is about valuing everyone. An inclusive and welcoming climate embraces differences and offers respect for all people. Reflecting the diversity of our faculty, staff, and students makes our university and the society in which we live a better place.
We hope you take part by self-declaring; please make your voice count. Together, we can build an equitable, diverse and inclusive community.
