What is Employment Equity? - Posted on September 25, 2020

Employment Equity at Humber College

"It is not that individuals in the designated groups are inherently unable to achieve equality on their own, it is that the obstacles in their way are so formidable and self-perpetuating that they cannot be overcome without intervention. It is both intolerable and insensitive if we simply wait and hope that the barriers will disappear with time. Equality in employment will not happen unless we make it happen." - Judge Rosalie Silberman Abella Royal Commission on Equality in Employment, 1985

Humber College is committed to principles of equity, diversity and inclusion in the workplace. The Employment Equity Act was passed in 1986. Recognizing that "systemic discrimination" was responsible for most of the inequality found in employment, the Abella Royal Commission on Equality in Employment outlined a systemic response and chose the term "Employment Equity" to describe the process.

What is Employment Equity?

Employment Equity is an on-going planning process used by an employer to:

  • identify and eliminate barriers in an organization's employment policies and procedures;
  • put into place positive policies and practices to ensure the effects of systemic barriers are eliminated; and
  • ensure appropriate representation of identified group members throughout their workforce.

What is the goal of Employment Equity?

  • eliminate employment barriers for members of equity-seeking groups: Women, Persons with Disabilities, Indigenous Peoples, and Racialized Persons. In addition to these four groups, Humber invites employees to respond to questions pertaining to Gender Diversity and Sexual Orientation;
  • remedy past discrimination in employment opportunities and prevent future barriers;
  • improve access and distribution throughout all occupations and at all levels for members of the identified groups; and
  • foster a climate of equity and inclusion in the organization.

Humber College complies voluntarily with the Employment Equity Act under the Federal Contractors Program.

Please visit the Centre website for more information about Humber’s Employment Equity Program.

Retirement: Maureen Martin-Edey - Posted on August 24, 2020

Posted:
August 24, 2020

The Organizational Effectiveness Department announces the retirement of Maureen Martin-Edey (lovingly known as “Mo”), effective August 31, 2020.

Mo is leaving Humber after a career of 41 years, that started at the Queensway campus as an Audio Visual Technician in 1979. From this role, she moved on to other roles which included AV Technician, Secretary, Liaison Assistant, Marketing Assistant, worked with the School for Writers and School for Comedy and finally as the L&D Coordinator in OE.

Mo has an undeniable gust for life and well-being and in 1991 she became a Fitness Instructor in Athletics, leading aerobics and strength classes, and initiated a Weight Training for Women program in 1992-1994, and Yoga at Humber in 2000. She also led Pilates classes and facilitated nutritional courses.

Anyone wanting to process their Tuition Assistance refund, Scholarship refunds or register for training would certainly have interfaced with Mo. The OE Department will miss Mo’s always kind words, willingness to support in any area of need and genuine care for people.

As Mo retires, we take this opportunity to thank her for her commitment to Humber and to wish her the best in all her future activities.

You can certainly connect with Mo as she plans to continue teaching yoga flow classes, breathing/relaxation sessions and meditation for the Athletics department.

The Interim Manager will provide leadership for the breadth of services for Humber’s Indigenous community, provided through the IE&E. Services include the continued expansion of cultural and social support programs, community outreach, advising services, peer support services and the planning of various cultural events on campus. The Interim Manager will develop, maintain and operationalize services that reflect the College’s commitment to the Indigenous Education Protocol.  

An Anishinaabekwe from Garden River First Nation, Quazance has worked as the Aboriginal Liaison Officer at Humber College since Fall 2013. Quickly hired on full time in early 2014, she has lead the College in strategic communications with First Nation communities and leveraged Humber’s brand identity by attending Indigenous sporting events and conferences across the province and nationally.

Regina Hartwick, Acting Associate Dean, Indigenous Education & Engagement - Posted on June 8, 2020

It is my pleasure to announce Regina Hartwick as Acting Associate Dean of Indigenous Education & Engagement as of June 1, 2020.

A Kichi-Sìbì Anishinàbekwe, Regina Hartwick is honoured to serve as Acting Associate Dean, Indigenous Education & Engagement at Humber College. With eight years of experience in Indigenous Student Services, nine years of experience teaching within and developing Indigenous Studies courses, and 16 years of combined academic experience in Canadian Studies, Indigenous Studies, Psychology and Social Services, Regina is an accomplished Indigenous scholar who recognizes the challenges, privileges and responsibilities of post-secondary education. She has sought to transform education in ways that are more inclusive of Indigenous ways of knowing, being, and doing. Through her community work, teaching, research, and academic writing, Regina honours the gifts, offerings and teachings of those who came before, making tracks that are with each step a dedication to generations that will follow.

Under the mentorship of Michi Saagiig scholar Leanne Betasamosake Simpson, Regina is currently completing her Doctorate in Indigenous Studies at Trent University and is focusing her research on stories of presence that speak not only of dispossession but also of strength and resilience in the face of innumerable odds. The intersection of narrative memory and beliefs on what it means to be Anishinabe within the complex relational nexus of the Kichi Sìbì, act as anchor that brings to the forefront a (re)imagining of how Anishinàbeg might realize the full potential of our human embodiment, with healthy hearts, minds, bodies and spirits.

This position is new to Humber and will have a unique relationship with the academic faculty and supports how we at Humber College approach our future in innovative ways. Reporting to the Dean, Indigenous Education and Engagement, while also working closely with Program Planning, Development and Review, and the Centre for Teaching and Learning, the Acting Associate Dean is informed by the college’s mission, vision, principles, and strategic plans, CiCan’s Indigenous Education Protocol (2014), the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s Calls to Action (2015), and Humber’s Strategic Plan (2018-2023).
