Nominations invited for human rights awards

The Office of Human Rights, Equity and Accessibility invites nominations for its annual awards, recognizing the contributions of individuals and groups to advance human rights, social justice, diversity, inclusivity, employment equity and accessibility at the University of Windsor.

The awards committee is looking for demonstrated evidence and specific examples in four categories:

New committee’s mandate to include employment equity

The University of Windsor has announced the launch of the President’s Committee on Diversity and Inclusion (PCDI), which will replace the President’s Accessibility Steering Committee (PASC).

The PCDI will have a broader mandate that will also include employment equity. Both the Campus Accessibility Coordinating Committee and Employment Equity Coordinating Committee will report on their work directly to the PCDI. It is anticipated that a Human Rights Coordinating Committee will later be developed and also report to the PCDI.
