Terms of Reference
The School of Epidemiology and Public Health launched an inaugural equity, diversity and inclusion committee (EDIC) in July 2020. The decision to launch this committee was based on the increasing recognition of the importance of equity, diversity and inclusion in research environments, including the University of Ottawa participation in the Tri-Council Dimensions pilot program. EDI is also central to the University of Ottawa Strategic Action Plan which includes a pillar dedicated to internationalization, social accountability and global health.
The Terms of Reference below reflect the direction of the inaugural EDIC and may be amended by the future EDI standing committee.
