Equity, diversity and inclusion in research
ÉTS welcomes all competent individuals who wish to innovate and contribute to the advancement of applied research in engineering. As such, ÉTS is committed to promoting equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) in all of its research activities.
The ÉTS commitment
In keeping with its 2016-2019 Strategic Plan (Plan stratégique 2016-2019 – in French), ÉTS is committed to becoming an incubator for globally recognized research networks and niches. This requires focusing on recruiting high-level candidates who have the potential to innovate and contribute to the growth of research projects. Creativity and research excellence are the primary qualities of the ÉTS faculty, which is why ÉTS welcomes anyone who is committed to innovation into its academic activities, and is committed to promoting equity, diversify and inclusion (EDI) in all of its research activities.
ÉTS also wishes to actively contribute to achieving the EDI program objectives (PDF) adopted by the Canada Research Chairs (CRC), and has established targets for the reduction of under-representation in accordance with the Secretariat’s proposed objectives for small institutions that have been awarded ten chairs or less.
