Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

According to the University of Toronto, Division of the Vice-President, Research & Innovation:

  • Equity is the fair and respectful treatment of all people. Equity is the process; equality is the result
  • Diversity is the demographic mix of the community, with a focus on the representation of equity-deserving groups
  • Inclusion is the creation of an environment where everyone feels welcome, is treated with respect, and is able to fully participate
