Webinar to discuss equity, diversity, and inclusion statements for funding grant applications

Equity, diversity, and inclusion statements are now required for several Tri-Agency funding applications, but most researchers do not have experience writing one.

A webinar at noon Tuesday, Aug. 24, will provide the knowledge to write outstanding EDI statements, all based on the scientific literature.

Lisa Willis, a biology professor at the University of Alberta, will present “EDI Statements in Research Grant Applications” under the auspices of the Office of Research and Innovation Services as part of its webinar series on equity, diversity, and inclusion.

The session will include information on the rationale for working with diverse scientific teams, the current numbers for diversity in Canadian science and tech, and the controlled studies demonstrating bias in these fields.
