Equity census sends message to employees: UCount!

Under the slogan “At UWindsor, UCount!” the University will conduct a campus-wide Employment Equity Census in November, providing faculty and staff an opportunity to self-identify and update previous self-identification responses.

All employees are required to submit the online census questionnaire. The information helps the University identify how it is doing regarding employment equity and diversity across the campus community.

The results will be used to help develop and deliver initiatives to promote fairness and equity and inform requirements for specific employment equity programs.

All employees will receive an email with a link that will take them directly to the census to submit the questionnaire.

  • Using UWin identification and password will connect you to a secure website.
  • Completing the census should take approximately two or three minutes.
  • The census is also available in alternate formats (such as hard paper copy or large print) for those who require it.

The terminology used for the four federally designated groups — Aboriginal peoples, people with disabilities, visible minorities, and women — is in accordance with the Employment Equity Act and Federal Contractors Program. Sexual and gender minorities are a fifth designated group at the University of Windsor.
