Action Plan

The Canada Research Chairs (CRC) Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Action Plan has been developed by Office of Research and Innovation and Human Resources staff along with members of senior administration, has been endorsed by the President and is a work in progress with several processes currently under review. As such, as part of our community consultation process, please send any feedback on the UNBC CRC EDI Action Plan via research@unbc.ca. This feedback will be reviewed by the CRC EDI Working Group and taken into consideration for plan modification.
