Employment Equity is defined as an ongoing process that identifies and eliminates barriers to an organization’s employment procedures and policies. It means establishing proactive employment practices to address systemic barriers to ensure appropriate representation of designated group members throughout their workforce.

Building an inclusive community with a shared purpose has been identified as an important priority for McMaster University. We believe it is important for our workforce to reflect the diversity of our students and community. The diversity of our workforce is at the core of our innovation and creativity and strengthens our research and teaching excellence.

In our efforts to fulfil McMaster’s commitment to diversity, equity and inclusivity, we have released the results of our 2016 Employment Equity Census.
