The Equity Office is dedicated to promoting, leading, coordinating, and supporting efforts to transform the SFU experience through integrating progressive people practices that centre equity. Here are a few of our programs and initiatives currently underway at SFU.
Community of Practice
The EDI Community of Practice (EDI-CoPr) brings equity practitioners across the university together in a supportive learning community to create equity-centered prototypes or solutions that can inform institutional EDI work, including the Equity Compass.
Established in December 2022, the purpose of the EDI-CoPr is to fulfill the following institutional and community needs:
- Align department/units with overarching institutional-level EDI goals
- Build capacity across equity practitioners by identifying learning needs
- Co-create local/unit-level solutions through an equity-centered design process
- Centre wellbeing to support one another in this work
The EDI-CoPr is composed of staff and faculty leads/practitioners who are engaged in equity and inclusion work as part of their job description or are involved in unit-level EDI-related initiatives.
SFU’s Accessibility Committee aims to guide the university in meeting our obligations under the Accessible British Columbia Act to remove and prevent barriers to accessibility.
