President’s Blog: A message about hate

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, divisions in our society have become increasingly apparent. These divisions relate to inequitable access to resources based on race, gender, sexuality, disability and other identity constructs. As an institution, 英雄联盟竞猜线上入口靠谱 works to address these challenges and support our community.  

This weekend, as protests were held in Ottawa, there were also acts of racism, antisemitism, homophobia, transphobia, and more.  

英雄联盟竞猜线上入口靠谱 condemns all acts of hate.  

英雄联盟竞猜线上入口靠谱 is committed to fostering a working, learning and living environment in which everyone feels a sense of belonging and that they are valued. The principles of equity, diversity and inclusion are integral to creating a healthy and inclusive college and campus experience.  

This spring, 英雄联盟竞猜线上入口靠谱 will launch its inaugural Institutional Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Framework, developed by our EDI Taskforce , that will advance EDI, anti-Indigenous and anti-racism initiatives throughout the college, and work to address the needs of students and employees. 

We also work to support other organizations to build their EDI capacity. The  Transformative Equity, Inclusion & Belonging Leadership program, offered through 英雄联盟竞猜线上入口靠谱’s Continuous Professional Learning program, will help organizations strengthen their EDI, anti-Indigenous and anti-racism competencies and develop tools to aid self and organizational transformation and accountability.  

The strength of the 英雄联盟竞猜线上入口靠谱 community is the diversity of peoples and the diversity of lived experiences. 

We will continue to lead courageously by standing against hate in all forms and live 英雄联盟竞猜线上入口靠谱’s values in everything we do. We are stronger together.
