Equity, diversity and inclusion in the research enterprise
Achieving equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) in the Canadian research enterprise is essential for continuing to generate the excellent, innovative and impactful research necessary to advance knowledge and respond to national and global challenges.
SSHRC is committed to advancing research excellence through our ongoing efforts to reduce the systemic barriers and biases experienced by women, Indigenous Peoples, people with disabilities, members of racialized minority groups, and other underrepresented and disadvantaged groups, both through SSHRC programs and initiatives and across the numerous tri-agency programs SSHRC administers.
