Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion

UBC Certificate Program

We respectfully acknowledge that the UBC Certificate in Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) is an initiative out of UBC Extended Learning, Vancouver which is located on the traditional, ancestral and unceded territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) people. Through this program, we commit to supporting learners to develop skills and strategies to collaborate across racial differences to co-create justice-centered, anti-racist, equitable, and inclusive communities and workplaces. The program amplifies and centers the voices, lived experiences and perspectives of Indigenous, Black and People of Colour.

The pervasive and systemic nature of racism, violence and injustice toward Indigenous, Black and People of Colour in Canada and around the world is engrained in the very building blocks of our societies. While our organizations and communities readily recognize the economic benefits of diversity and inclusion, there are many gaps when it comes to addressing issues of inequities, racism and injustice.

This part-time career development program offers you pathways to move away from optics and performative allyship, to effective and transformative action. Develop strategies to collaborate across racial differences, dismantle systemic barriers, and co-create equitable, inclusive and safe workplaces.
