Engineering Equity and Diversity, University of Waterloo, Faculty of Engineering, with hands on a table.

Engineering EDI (Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion) is a new initiative on campus, catering to faculty, staff, and students within the Faculty of Engineering; our goals are in alignment with those of the University of Waterloo’s Office of Equity, Diversity, Inclusion & Anti-Racism. We strive to amplify events which support and bolster equity and inclusivity on campus, as well as host our own events to help students with similar experiences connect with one another. We also provide support to student groups and chapters such as AISES (American Indian Science and Engineering Society), EngiQueers, NSBE (National Society of Black Engineers), and WiE (Women in Engineering).

You Don't Know What You Don't Know | Part 3

Part 3 of a three-part workshop hosted by Ela Smith that journeys through First Nations, Inuit, and Metis relations with settlers. As the title indicates, you don't know, what you don't know so everyone is welcome. You will be introduced to the concept of Miskasowin (wholistic self-evaluation) that will define content, context, and relationship promoting further action, accountability, and responsibilities as a treaty person in this land now known as Canada.
