Humber has identified as its Strategic Priority #7 under Pillar #3, Healthy and Inclusive Community, to continue to build a diverse and inclusive community of exceptional students, faculty and staff. The specific supporting action is to establish and implement an institutional framework and strategy for equity, diversity and inclusion that addresses the needs of both students and employees.
What is an Employee Resource Group:
Employee Resource Groups are voluntary, employee-led groups that foster a diverse and inclusive workplace aligned with organizational mission, values, goals, business practices, and objectives. Additional benefits include the development of future leaders, increased employee engagement, and expanded marketplace reach. - https://www.catalyst.org/topics/ergs
