Dear Inclusive Design Community,

As a part of the University of Victoria (UVic) Co-op + Career’s commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI), we have recently created an EDI Team to support student, staff, and employers, with a particular focus on accessibility and inclusion in the workplace.

Please let me know if you would like to speak to a member of our EDI Team about:

·         employment opportunities for students across all UVic Co-op + Career programs who face barriers to employment

·         creating a job posting that encourages a diverse applicant pool

·         how you can model accessibility and inclusion for co-op students in your workplace

As an additional part of our work to support EDI in the workplace, we are interested in hearing from employers about their efforts to promote inclusion in their employment practices. If you have a practice that you would like to share with us, our EDI Team would also be interested in hearing from you.
