Employment Equity

Having a workforce that reflects the social diversity of our student body and of Montreal is both a matter of fairness and of enriching the advancement of McGill's academic mission.

Employment equity seeks to correct disadvantages in employment experienced by members of groups that have been shown to face persistent and systemic barriers to equity in employment.

Data about our employees is essential to this end, and we urge all McGill staff and faculty to complete McGill's Employment Equity survey.
