Equitable Futures: Advancing Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, and Decolonization in Academic Life
The Western Equity Census Working Group and the University of Western Ontario Faculty Association (UWOFA) are very pleased to present a panel discussion on the advancement of equity, diversity, inclusion, and decolonization at Canadian universities.

Equitable Futures: Advancing Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, and Decolonization (EDI-D) in Canadian Academic Life
Featuring: Dr. Nicole Kaniki, Dr. Candace Brunette-Debassige, and Dr. Mark Daley.
Hosted by Jeff Tennant
22 October, 2:30PM

As part of our commitment to advance the conversation on promising practices of EDI-D, both at Western and at universities across Canada, we are hosting a webinar discussion on the urgent need to embed principles, policies, and processes of equity and decolonization to achieve a more inclusive campus culture. We have invited three dynamic experts to reflect on their experience of leading change at Western: Dr. Candace Brunette-Debassige, the former Special Advisor to the Provost on Indigenous Initiatives, was a leader in the development and implementation of Western’s Indigenous Strategic Plan as well as the creation of the Office of Indigenous Initiatives. Dr. Nicole Kaniki, the former Special Advisor to the President on Anti-Racism, spearheaded several EDI initiatives at Western and helped to create the new Office of the Associate Vice-President of EDI. Dr. Mark Daley, the Special Advisor to the President on Data Strategy, helped to design the data governance policy for the Western Equity Census, the university’s first-ever comprehensive demographic survey.

We have invited all three experts to reflect on their roles as special advisors at Western, and to consider how we can identify and challenge systematic barriers to full participation in our university life. With the launch of the Western Equity Census this month, we will also explore how Western and universities across Canada can use demographic data to transform our institutions for the benefit of students, faculty, and staff.
