REDI Initiatives

REDI, which stands for Respect, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion, is a working group in Facilities Services’ which will develop strategies for the creation of equitable, diverse and inclusive (EDI) programs, standards and social awareness within our department. Facilities Services is committed to demonstrating President Joy Johnson’s core values and that starts within our own department.

What is EDI?

EDI is short for equity, diversity and inclusion.

The difference between equality and equity means the act of distributing resources based on the needs of recipients rather than equally distributing the same resources. Diversity is defined by the inclusion and equal opportunities for people with different social and ethnic backgrounds, as well as for people who identify as LGBTQ+ and of different genders. Inclusion is providing equal access to resources or opportunities for people who would otherwise be excluded or marginalized.
