Training: Introduction to EDI concepts in a scientific context

In 2021, we will be holding a series of training and reflection activities on equity, diversity and inclusion issues. Our goal is to develop an EDI action plan for the program in order to consolidate a more inclusive, respectful and open environment.

A first training activity will take place on January 22, 2021. It is a short introduction to EDI concepts in a university context.

The objectives of this workshop are:

  • Define the concepts of equity, diversity and inclusion
  • Identify the benefits and challenges of EDI in the university context
  • Recongnize how to become an EDI bearer during one’s university career
  • Raise awareness of intercultural communication (professional competence of tomorrow)

The workshop is developed by Agathe Riallan, Faculty Coordinator for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) at the Faculty of Science, Université de Sherbrooke, in collaboration with Marie-José Naud, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Advisor and Coordinator at the Centre d’études nordiques (CEN).

The workshop will be conducted in French and English.
