Equity, diversity and Inclusion

Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Committee

The Arnie Charbonneau Cancer Institute's Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Committee will help translate EDI principles into clear policies and action plan within the Institute.

The EDI Committee objectives are to:

  • Develop approaches for furthering equity, diversity, and inclusion across all activities within the Institute.
  • Identify ways to strengthen inclusion for groups who experience marginalization.
  • Perform self-assessment and data gathering on diversity and inclusion within the Institute.
  • Raise awareness of issues relating to EDI across the cancer research spectrum.

For more resources on equity, diversity and inclusion at the University of Calgary and the Cumming School of Medicine, please visit the Precision Equity and Social Justice Office website.
