Our Commitment to Hiring with a Focus on Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion

Hiring with a Focus on Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion

Hiring practices with active measures to eliminate discrimination support employment equity and help the Graduate Students’ Association of the University of Calgary provide an equitable, diverse, inclusive, and accessible workplace which fosters belonging and empowerment. The GSA has a strong commitment to increasing representation and correcting historic disadvantage by ensuring opportunities for underrepresented groups.

At the GSA, we are working to actively eliminate discrimination and to reverse the historic under-representation of Indigenous, Black, members of racialized groups, women, diversely abled, and the LGBTTQQPIANU+ community (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Two-Spirit, Queer, Questioning, Pansexual, Intersex, Asexual, Nonbinary, Unlabelled, and more) within our workforce.
