Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion
CIFAR is committed to creating a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment.
We know we can, and need to, do better. Our efforts require concrete actions and goals if we are to achieve meaningful change.
We know that underrepresented groups experience systemic barriers in science, and more broadly in research organizations and academia. We know that we can do more to ensure our actions, systems and processes have a meaningful impact in removing some of these barriers.
CIFAR has an opportunity to create a model for international research excellence and collaboration that helps the broader research community make progress towards more equitable, diverse and inclusive practices. We are committed to taking deliberate action toward this objective, informed by the best available evidence and data.
We are working towards a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive world.
