Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion

UBC Certificate Program

"We need to cultivate listening, partnership and solidarity to carve out a better future."

Desmond Cole
Canadian journalist, activist, author and broadcaster

While most organizations have a language and process in place to embrace diversity and inclusion, without effectively addressing the inequities in our systems–such as the unequal distribution of power and resources–individuals and organizations will always stop short of their full potential.

The UBC Certificate in Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) offers pathways to move away from optics and performative allyship, to effective and transformative action. By centering and amplifying the voices, lived experiences and perspectives of historically marginalized groups, the program focuses on collective solidarity and co-creation of justice-centered, equitable and inclusive communities and workplaces.
