McMaster’s Commitment to Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion
McMaster University is committed to building a diverse and inclusive community, where the rights of all individuals and groups are protected and all members feel safe, valued, empowered and respected for their contributions to the shared purposes of the University: research and education excellence. Inclusion occurs when systems and structures facilitate full participation by all community members and where members are treated equitably for their contributions. Employment Equity is a key part of our progress towards inclusivity in the employment relationship, and is an ongoing process that identifies, addresses and mitigates barriers in employment policies, practices and procedures.
