2022-2023 Gina Cody School EDI Research Grant recipients
About the Project
The team's project will explore the crucial role of Indigenous communities in addressing environmental problems, covering topics such as emerging pollution problems, climate change adaptation, traditional ecological knowledge, biodiversity conservation, Indigenous leadership in decision-making, and the challenges faced by Indigenous communities.
Despite their sustainable way of life, Indigenous communities are disproportionately affected by many emerging environmental problems such as climate change, deforestation, and pollution. Recognizing and addressing these issues can help create a more equitable and sustainable future for Indigenous communities.

This award will support and recognize the research projects that Gina Cody School full-time tenured or tenure-track faculty members undertake to build knowledge of EDI in the context of engineering and computer science and to, directly or indirectly, affect positive change for marginalized and/or underrepresented groups (women, Indigenous peoples, persons with disabilities and/or members of visible minorities amongst other groups).
I/We would like to begin by acknowledging that Concordia University is located on unceded Indigenous lands. The Kanien’kehá:ka Nation is recognized as the custodians of the lands and waters on which we gather today. Tiohtià:ke/Montréal is historically known as a gathering place for many First Nations. Today, it is home to a diverse population of Indigenous and other peoples. We respect the continued connections with the past, present and future in our ongoing relationships with Indigenous and other peoples within the Montreal community.
