York University Committee on Equity, Diversity and Inclusion for Faculty Recruitment

Please respond by June 23rd, 2017

Thank you for considering this very important pan-university committee. This committee will set out to create an action plan to ensure York University’s Canada Research Chair program lives up to and exceeds the standards of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion set by Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Action Plan. Although federally mandated to have members of the current CRC administrative process and members of the four designated groups (women, persons with disabilities, Aboriginal Peoples and visible minorities), we hope to build a team with the requisite knowledge and concern for this topic area to help direct York’s execution of the Canada Research Chair program during the next critical 18-24 months.

Committee Mandate
Without limiting the generality of the following, the committee will:
• Through consultations with stakeholders, including subject matter experts, representatives of the FDGs, York faculty members and administrators, representatives of the Tri-Council Agencies and/or the CRC Secretariat and others as required, as well as an examination of relevant documents, policies and publications, develop a deep understanding of the issues and concerns around equity, diversity and inclusion that the CRC Program’s Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Action Plan is designed to address.
• In consideration of current practices at York, global best practices, best practices advocated by the CRC Program and other expert sources, formulate an institutional plan. The institutional plan will satisfy the required criteria and adhere to the prescribed outline.

The committee is expected to meet beginning in mid-July 2017, targeting a December 2017 release of its institutional plan. The Committee expects to meet every 3-4 weeks throughout this period.

To submit your expression of interest in joining the Committee on Equity, Diversity and Inclusion for Faculty Recruitment please fill out the fields below, and you will be contacted by the Committee Chair. This call is intended to select a limited number of Committee members only.

Expressions of Interest will be accepted until June 23rd, 2017.
