Equity, Diversity & Inclusion

McMaster University strives to embody the values of integrity, quality, inclusiveness and teamwork, and has a strong commitment to employment equity.

Employment equity is defined as an ongoing process that identifies and eliminates barriers to an organization’s employment procedures and policies. It includes establishing proactive employment practices to address systemic barriers to ensure appropriate representation of designated group members throughout a workforce.

Building an inclusive community with a shared purpose is something that McMaster University prioritizes. We believe it is important for our workforce to reflect the diversity of our students and community. The diversity of our workforce is at the core of our innovation and creativity, and is a key area that strengthens our research capabilities and teaching excellence.
