Training and Workshops

Training for Faculty, Staff, and Graduate Students


The SEDE office offers staff, faculty, and graduate students the opportunity to participate in a workshop series on equity and diversity issues in the classroom and on the campus. The series consists of 5 sessions, and includes a workshop focused on creating inclusive spaces for queer and trans* people at McGill, entitled, Safer Spaces: Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity. Participants who attend this session may elect to become a McGill Safer Spaces Ally.

Other workshops in the suite include Understanding Discrimination; Race, Culture, and Anti-Racism; Indigenous Perspectives; and Access, Disability, and Universal Design. It is not necessary to register for all the workshops in order to take one of them, as the sessions are designed to stand on their own.  However, the material covered in the sessions is complementary, and beginning in the 2013-2014 Academic Year, participants completing all five sessions will receive a certificate of completion.

The SEDE office also offers made-to-measure trainings for your department, unit, or team. Call us at (514) 398-2176 or send us an [at] (email) if you would like more information.

    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.
