Many students do not know about the Centre for Human Rights, Equity & Diversity. The Centre ensures that equity, diversity and inclusion are instilled throughout Humber. The goal of the Centre is to increase human rights, equity, diversity and inclusion awareness.
The Centre provides human rights, equity, diversity and inclusion training, and harassment/discrimination prevention education through workshops, library exhibits and educational resources. They host speakers with notable presenters on human rights and equity topics. Additionally, they provide group and one-to-one customized support and resources on equity, diversity and inclusion.
The Centre will ensure your rights are upheld, as outlined by the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, Occupational Health and Safety Act, the Ontario Human Rights Code and many other acts to ensure your safety. We will also investigate any complaints related to Humber’s Human Rights related policies. These complaints may be resolved through early interventions, consultations, mediation, conciliation and referrals to internal and external resources.
Additionally, the Centre is the co-lead for Humber’s Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Committees, including the Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Taskforce (EDI Taskforce), who through a consultative and collaborative process, will utilize an intersectional lens to establish and implement an institutional framework and strategy for equity, diversity and inclusion that addresses the needs of both students and employees.
