Langara’s new 2025 Strategic Plan, Weaving a shared future, includes a commitment in the Our Culture section, to develop and begin to implement a Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (JEDI) strategy. This goal arose both from the feedback of our community when developing the plan, and the commitment of our Board of Governors to creating an environment at Langara that welcomes and includes everyone.  

While work is already underway in different parts of the College, one important step we are taking to advance this work is the creation of a role to coordinate and lead this work. In May, 2022 we welcomed Dr. Joy Walcott-Francis to her new role as Director, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion at snəw̓eyəɬ leləm̓ Langara College.
