Equity

is the process of treating all people fairly. It ensures that policies, processes and decisions do not disadvantage some groups or individuals based on their identities or lived experiences. A commitment to equity acknowledges that disparities in opportunities are rooted in historical and contemporary injustices and systemic barriers.

Diversity

is the demographic mix of the community. A diverse community includes a wide range of expressions and experiences, including different gender identities, ethnoracial identities, sexual orientiations, abilities and other identity factors.

Inclusion

is the creation of an environment where everyone is treaty equitably and feels welcome and respected. Inclusion means actively fostering the conditions in which everyone can access opportunities, fully participate and maximize their creativity and contributions.

It is important to note that while an inclusive group is by definition diverse, a diverse group is not always inclusive. An inclusive university works to remove systemic barriers while respecting, valuing and celebrating difference.

VPRI’s role

  • Provide guidance on EDI initiatives related to research and innovation;
  • Support the implementation of EDI best practices in research and innovation;
  • Support compliance with EDI requirements for federally-sponsored research programs.
