Equity, Diversity & Inclusion (EDI) Definitions

Equity: refers to the ongoing intentional and systemic approach to remove historic and current barriers for Indigenous Peoples and equity-deserving groups. Humber applies specific programs, policies and practices to support fair and just outcomes.

Note: At Humber, equity-deserving groups refer to communities who were historically and who are currently underserved and underrepresented. These groups include Women, Persons with Disabilities, Racialized Persons, Persons from diverse Gender Identities and Persons who identify as 2SLGBTQ+.

Diversity: refers to the different social, cultural and political identities of individuals and their worldviews, knowledges, practices, and experiences. Humber values and respects the contributions of its diverse students and employees leading to an enriched learning, working and living environment.

Inclusion: refers to the active and intentional engagement of people in all their diverse social, cultural and political identities that fosters a sense of belonging. At Humber, this engagement is grounded in respect, and all members of the college community are recognized as valued contributors. Inclusion is intrinsically connected to wellbeing and enriches innovation, sustainability and excellence in curricula, research, programs and services.
