Introducing the Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Framework.

Dr. Joy Walcott-Francis, director, EDI and Dr. Paula Burns, president. 

We are pleased to present snəw̓eyəɬ leləm̓ Langara’s first equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) framework, which outlines Langara’s EDI work over the next three years. The EDI framework represents the voices of Langara’s diverse community and is informed by the community and their responses to the survey, focus groups, employee engagement sessions and interviews.

As a post-secondary institution, we are proud to have students and employees with so many diverse identities and intersecting backgrounds, shaped by factors such as culture, religion, gender, sexual orientation, and ability. This diversity makes our college both stronger and more resilient and better connects us to a rapidly changing world.

As a community, we must ensure that every action we take is grounded in and guided by principles of equity, diversity, and inclusion. Through these efforts, we aim to promote social justice and equity on our campuses and within our wider society, while actively working to dismantle the systems that continue to disadvantage equity-deserving groups in our community.
