Research Practice Resources

EDI Statement Resources

An Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) Statement is a living document that communicates the commitment of an educator/researcher/research team/department to EDI and how they translate these values into their practice within a postsecondary context. It usually includes meaningful reflection on the following components:

  • What are the systemic barriers and EDI issues in your discipline, department, or institution?
  • What concrete actions have you taken in the past to address these barriers and issues?
  • How do you plan to address these barriers and issues in the future?

For additional resources, search "EDI statements" in the UWinnipeg Research Practice for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Library.

EDI in Training and Mentorship Resources Research Practice Resource Library

The UWinnipeg Research Practice Library for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion is a living database for resources pertaining to:

  • Team composition and recruitment
  • Research environment
  • Governance for partnered research
  • Training/mentorship planning
  • Evaluation and assessment

These resources can be searched using keywords related to discipline, identity groups, etc.

The Tri-Agency defines equity, diversity, and inclusion in research practice as "promoting diversity in team composition and trainee recruitment; fostering an equitable, inclusive and accessible research work environment for team members and trainees; and highlighting diversity and equity in mentoring, training and access to development opportunities."

Put simply, EDI in research practice is about applying EDI principles to your day-to-day research operations rather than to a specific project.
