Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Guide

The University of Toronto has compiled a number of resources related to Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in Research & Innovation (EDIRI).

For the full list of resources please see the EDIRI website

Among the resources is a handbook addressing Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion in Research Funding Applications – Research Teams and the Training of Highly Qualified Personnel (UTORid required to access).

This handbook outlines a number of ways in which you can address equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) considerations in a research funding application. This resource is focused on embedding EDI in the composition of the research team and/or in the training of highly qualified personnel (HQP), and does not describe the integration of diversity/gender-based analysis plus (GBA+) into research design.

For resources related to research design and methods, consult the resources page of the EDI in Research & Innovation website. The sections are adapted in part from New Frontiers in Research Fund – Best Practices in EDI in Research. These sections provide a range of potential practices to support EDI in your research team and HQP training, as well as information on implementing these practices on an ongoing basis.
