JUSTICE, EQUITY, AND INCLUSION SUPPORTS FOR WIL STUDENTS
Welcome! The SFU WIL JEI Team offers students equity and inclusion supports and resources for work-integrated learning (WIL) and Co-op. You can be at any stage of your Co-op or WIL journey and access these supports. Whether you encounter equity and inclusion-related barriers in the job search or hiring process, in the workplace, or upon/after work term completion, we are here to help. We can also provide referrals to other supports you may find helpful. Can’t find what you are looking for? Contact us!
Are you a student with Co-op related questions about equity and inclusion?
If you have questions about equity and inclusion in the workplace, we are here to provide advising supports. For example, are you worried about facing barriers in hiring? Dealing with a difficult issue during your work term? Do you have questions about disclosure? These are just some examples we can help with.
