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.

The project was initiated by the Engineering Undergraduate Society’s Indigenous Inclusion Committee (ICC) with the hopes of increasing visibility, representation, and inclusion of Indigenous students and cultures in the Faculty of Engineering, and developed in collaboration with the Faculty of Engineering’s Dean’s office, the Provost’s Indigenous Initiatives Office, and McGill’s Visual Arts Collection. The exhibit features 30 artworks from a variety of First Nations, Inuit and Métis communities, curated by the Indigenous Inclusion Committee, selected from McGill's Visual Arts Collection. It is the first exhibit of its kind at McGill.


McGill University is on land which long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst Indigenous peoples, including the Haudenosaunee and Anishinabeg nations. We acknowledge and thank the diverse Indigenous people whose footsteps have marked this territory on which peoples of the world now gather.
