The Rosalind and Morris Goodman Cancer Institute is committed to advancing equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) across our research and innovation ecosystem. Incorporating EDI strengthens our research by harnessing a broader range of ideas, skills, expertise, perspectives, and disciplines, which further enhances outcomes, impacts and social relevance and better reflects the diverse and globalized world we live and work in, and our responsibilities to the peoples and the lands where we live and work.
McGill University is on land which has 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 peoples whose presence marks this territory on which peoples of the world now gather. The Rosalind and Morris Goodman Cancer Institute respects and honors the diverse histories, languages, cultures and experiences of First Nations, Métis, Inuit, and First Peoples of Canada.
We extend this respect and honour to the diversity in our community that includes but is not limited to race, ethnicity, national origin, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, age, disability, socio-economic status, class, and religion.
We are committed to creating an inclusive environment that brings together diverse perspectives from our trainees, staff, donors, and members of the community. Together, we will advance excellence in Cancer Research in ways that are equitable, diverse, and inclusionary.
We support the 2020-2025 strategy for EDI from McGill University.
