Equity, Diversity and Inclusion at Desautels

Equity, Diversity and Inclusion at Desautels

Developing a respectful, diverse and inclusive culture is key to ensuring everyone who passes through our doors feels safe, welcome, valued and heard. At the Desautels Faculty of Management, we are committed to advancing equity, diversity and inclusion to better serve our community.

Recent events and conversations in the world have highlighted inequities and systemic injustices that still permeate today’s society and organizations. Racism, discrimination and intolerance have no place in our community. Desautels brings together and enables talented students, faculty members and staff with diverse and intersecting identities so that all can flourish. We must cultivate a culture that not only values equity, diversity and inclusion, but practices these values in all that we do.
