Annual Reports 2020-21: Action Plan to Address Anti-Black Racism and the Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Strategic Plan

McGill University's Action Plan to Address Anti-Black Racism and the Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Strategic Plan (2020-2025) are both centered around five key priorities:  student experience, research and knowledge, outreach, workforce and physical space.   The following annual reports summarize efforts to build a campus community that is more equitable and inclusive by looking at progress made in the first year of the two plans in implementing various action items tied to each of the five priority areas.

After months of consultation over the 2019-2020 academic year with 100s of members of the McGill community, McGill’s first Strategic EDI Plan was endorsed in April 2020 by Senate and the Board of Governors. This Plan will ensure that EDI considerations are accounted for in all core University activities, and sets out a range of objectives and measures that McGill will undertake over the next five years. These measures will seek to enhance the diversity and representativeness of our university community while ensuring equitable opportunities and sense of inclusion and belonging for all. We welcome your feedback about the Plan and about EDI activities at McGill.

The concepts of equity, diversity, and inclusion are more than rhetoric; they are central to McGill’s academic mission and vision.
