This category contains tools and resources to facilitate and foster safe, accessible, inclusive and diverse processes. Concordia University’s Equity, Diversity and Inclusion program aims to promote fair treatment of all community members by removing institutionalized barriers, representing different backgrounds and knowledge practices, and constructing a meaningful sense of belonging.

The contents you will find in this category include resources related, but not limited, to understanding allyship and ways to engage as a settler creative practitioner; tools for anti-oppressive and accessible learning; land acknowledgement practices; and organizational and employment equity. This category also contains a list of external resources and networks for underrepresented and marginalized bodies—such as BIPOC, LGBTQ+, and creative practitioners with disabilities.
