In recent years, creating more inclusive and diverse environments to work, learn and study in has been a key focus – and ongoing struggle – for many post-secondary and public institutions and organizations. This work requires a deep commitment to identify barriers, uncover unconscious bias in processes such as hiring, and develop new ways to celebrate and promote diversity and ultimately transform culture.


Join us for a panel discussion on Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in the Post-Secondary and Public Sectors. Hear from our panel of experts in the public and post-secondary sectors on strategies they are using at their own organizations to address EDI as well as their thoughts on the path forward.


Panelists:


Patrick Borbery, President of the Public Service Commission


Gina Wilson, Deputy Minister of Diversity, Inclusion and Youth, Government of Canada


Dr. Deb Saucier, President and Vice-Chancellor, VIU


Dr. Jude Mary Cénat, Professor, University of Ottawa


Moderator:


Dr. Eliane Ubalijoro, a professor of practice for public and private sector partnerships at McGill University’s Institute for the Study of International Development.
