Welcome to STLHE’s Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Task Force (EDITF) on Equity, Diversity and Inclusion!

STLHE aims to foster a more inclusive climate, both within the organization and as a national voice in higher education for a diverse group of students, professors, administrators and staff, as it seeks to support, enhance, and advance effective teaching and learning in post-secondary institutions across Canada.

Towards this end, STLHE has established a Task Force on Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion to review EDI issues and current practices by identifying gaps and opportunities for improvement in the organization.

The EDITF knows there are many obstacles faced by equity deserving groups – groups including, but not limited to, women, Indigenous Peoples, persons with disabilities, members of racialized groups, persons with different socioeconomic status, and members of 2SLGBTQ+ communities. We stand in solidarity with all communities with whom we live and work.

To help us better understand members’ experiences in STLHE, we want to hear from you. We invite you to share your knowledge and experiences with us through:

  1. a member survey; and/or
  2. a “Share Your Story” option; and/or
  3. a small focus group.

Your voluntary participation in any or all of these initiatives will contribute to creating a more equitable and inclusive organization.

All information you share is confidential and will be reported in aggregate form only, to protect the identity of individuals and small groups. We recognize that the risks of participating in this process may include potential discomfort from remembering troubling incidents. We encourage you to seek out resources in your locations to speak with a professional about any feelings that arise.

If you have further questions or concerns about this process, please contact: Bre-Anna Owusu, Research Assistant.

STLHE is Proudly Partnered With:
