“Audre Lorde said `You become strong by doing the things you need to be strong for.` We want our equity, diversity and inclusiveness efforts to make us stronger for our students, faculty and staff at Dalhousie. We don`t have the luxury of waiting; they need us to be stronger today.”
Assistant Vice-President, Human Resources,
For more than 200 years, Dalhousie’s faculty and staff have contributed to a vibrant, purpose-driven community on our campuses in the heart of Halifax, in Truro/Bible Hill, Nova Scotia and in Saint John, New Brunswick. As Atlantic Canada’s leading research-intensive university, we bring together the brightest minds from diverse perspectives to drive the region’s intellectual, social and economic development. We are committed to fostering a respectful and inclusive space for everyone who works or studies with us. By working together, we’re able to make a difference every day — at home, across the country and around the world.
Dalhousie is strengthened in its diversity, which is why the university’s Strategic Direction prioritizes fostering a culture of diversity and inclusiveness. Through its Diversity and Inclusiveness Strategy, Dalhousie strives to create a more equitable, diverse and inclusive environment by focusing on four primary pillars – climate; student access & success; education & research; and structures.
Dalhousie is committed to employment equity and takes active measures to eliminate discrimination and to reverse the historic under-representation of Indigenous peoples (especially Mi’kmaq), members of racialized minority groups (especially historic African Nova Scotians), persons with disabilities, women, and persons of minority sexual orientations and/or gender identities (SOGI) within its workforce.
