NSERC has been implementing initiatives to increase women and girls’ participation in natural sciences and engineering research since the 1980s. These initiatives are now being complemented by additional institutional commitments and a Council-wide action plan to increase equity, diversity and inclusion as integral elements of research excellence. One of the five strategic goals within the current strategic plan, NSERC 2020, is, “Building a Diversified and Competitive Research Base,” which includes equity as a key priority.
This presentation, recognizing the range of issues contributing to current participation rates of women, people with disabilities, Indigenous peoples, gender diverse people and members of visible minorities in science and engineering research in Canada, introduces the initiatives and actions NSERC is committed to and undertaking to increase equity, diversity and inclusion in research and in understandings of research excellence. We look forward to sharing our work and receiving questions and input.
