Equity Programs and Initiatives

The Equity Programs at SEDE address the different needs of communities on campus, so that we may bring these into greater conversations around equity at McGill. This approach aims to build bridges in order to bring more voices together, so that particular experiences and stories can help facilitate understanding and respect in our collective learning and working environments.

Land Acknowledgment

Map of Montreal

McGill University is situated on the traditional territory of the Kanien’keha:ka, a place which has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst nations. We recognize and respect the Kanien’keha:ka as the traditional custodians of the lands and waters on which we meet today.* 

Recognizing the history of where you stand is important, and becoming increasingly common practice when hosting events and activities across Canada.

Here are a few tips to remember if you want to make a land acknowledgment before a class presentation, in a written document, or when hosting an event.
