University of Toronto recognized as one of Canada’s Best Diversity Employers for 2023
For the 16th consecutive year, the University of Toronto has been recognized as one of Canada’s Best Diversity Employers.
The competition, run by Mediacorp and published in the Globe and Mail, recognizes Canadian organizations that are creating impactful equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) initiatives within their institutions through intentional policies, community-centred action plans and best practices.
“It is an honour to be named one of Canada’s Best Diversity Employers again this year,” says Heather Boon, U of T's acting vice-president, people strategy, equity and culture. “Our efforts to foster a culture of belonging are ongoing, and there is always more to do. I’m grateful to the faculty members, librarians, and staff who deliver and support our equity initiatives and are actively working to keep improving on the progress we have made.”
The University of Toronto was recognized for its anti-racism efforts, including the work of its tri-campus equity offices; the broad range of educational programming offered by the Anti-Racism & Cultural Diversity Office; and the ongoing impact of its EDI working groups, including the Antisemitism Working Group and the Anti-Black Racism Task Force.
