DIVERSITY & EQUITY
Diversity makes good sense. It increases our skills, competencies and knowledge, improves our morale, broadens our curriculum, and makes us far mor attractive to an increasingly broad pool of students.
Wilfrid Laurier University formally recognized these benefits when it adopted the Employment Equity Policy in 1989 and since then, has demonstrated the university's desire to develop and support a diverse faculty, staff and student body by committing to the Federal Contractors Program. The university is committed to promote employment equity within the university community, and to eliminate any barriers that reduce or prevent employment equity.
Laurier is committed to provide equal employment opportunity to all individuals including any groups designated by federal or provincial legislation; it is committed to providing a workplace free from discrimination.
Organizations, including universities, that are able to understand and embrace the different cultures and customs that define and enrich our community will be the ones that succeed in increasingly competitive national and global economy.
