EDI.I resources

UBC Applied Science has curated resources to help faculty, staff and students to develop foundational knowledge of EDI.I concepts and principles.

We are also providing more in-depth training opportunities so that we can all learn how to apply EDI.I in our day to day roles as students, faculty or staff.

The resources provided below are organized according to the five themes: educate; engage; empower; enable; and evaluate.
