Commitment to diversity
An inclusive workplace is one which actively confronts and overcomes systemic barriers faced by different groups and enables everyone to realize their full potential. We truly value and celebrate our LGBT2SQIA+ community and we strive to advance equity and inclusion for all students, staff and faculty. Some of our initiatives include our Trans, Two-Spirit, and Gender Diversity Task Force, ongoing workshops and training opportunities, and events to celebrate and honour our LGBT2T2SQIA+ community throughout the entire year.
Vision for the future
UBC envisions a community in which human rights are respected and equity is embedded in all areas of academic, work and campus life. We strive to realize this vision by establishing employment and educational practices that respect the dignity of individuals and make it possible for everyone to live, work, and study in a positive and supportive environment, free from harmful behaviours such as bullying and harassment. Through this vision and collaborative action, we will further our commitment to excellence, equity and mutual respect, providing the best possible conditions for learning, researching, and working.
