Employment Equity Census 2020 “At UWindsor, UCount!”

The University of Windsor is conducting a campus-wide, Employment Equity Census in the Fall of 2020.

The information provided by you will allow the University to obtain accurate and updated information on our workforce and identify the scope of our diversity. It will also help in developing and delivering initiatives to promote fairness and equity at the University.

By participating in the Employment Equity Census, you have an opportunity for self-identification. It is important that individuals can determine which designated group(s) they identify themselves with. It serves as a reminder for employees to update their status if there are any changes.

To take the survey, please follow this link to the Employment Equity Census 2020

Responding to the Survey

Responding to the Employment Equity Census form is required. The information submitted is confidential and employees can choose to answer some or all of the questions asked. 


The Employment Equity Census is confidential but not anonymous. The Employment Equity Census information will only be used to support the University’s commitment to employment equity.

To protect your privacy, the data will be reported in an aggregate, summarized format that does not identify individuals.

The four federally designated groups are:

  • Aboriginal peoples
