The CANSSI Commitment to Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

> français

The creation of an equitable, diverse and inclusive Canadian statistics and inferential data science research enterprise is necessary for CANSSI to achieve its mission and for the statistical and inferential data science community to respond effectively to local, national and global challenges. CANSSI-supported activities are evaluated on their commitment to increasing and supporting diversity by giving equitable access to opportunities, supporting equitable and inclusive participation, and creating conditions for success for all participants which include feeling valued and included. Diversity is defined as differences in race, colour, place of origin, religion, immigrant and newcomer status, ethnic origin, ability, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression and age. Inclusion refers to the behaviours and social norms that ensure people feel welcome and valued.
