Humber has identified its Strategic Priority #7 under Pillar #3, Healthy and Inclusive Community. We strive to build a diverse and inclusive community of exceptional students, faculty, and staff. This specific supporting action is to establish and implement an institutional framework and strategy for equity, diversity and inclusion that addresses the needs of both students and employees.
Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) bring together employees who share a common identity, characteristic and set of interests. They create a culture of inclusion that enhances employee engagement and further supports organizations' vision and values (Source: Catalyst). The Black/African ERG was launched in September 2020 and is one of two ERGs that Humber and the University of Guelph-Humber currently offer for all eligible staff and faculty.
On November 29, 2021, from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m., there will be an Employment Systems Review (ESR) focus group meeting, and the consultants will ask about the following:
- The organizational culture at Humber and how the human resources employment policies and procedures can be enhanced.
- The ESR will seek your suggestions on possible changes to advance EDI at the College.
- Information provided to the consultants will be prepared in aggregate form.
