Indigeneity, Inclusion, and Equity Series

The Faculty of Education is committed to creating a welcoming, inclusive community. To support our mission of developing progressive, ethical, competent, and thoughtful leaders in education, and in response to the PICRDI and TRCTF Final Report, we established the Indigeneity, Inclusion and Equity Series (IIE). This ongoing series aims to provide resources, training, and spaces to share ideas and concerns around these issues for students, faculty, and staff.

To recognize our community’s commitment and participation, after five IIE workshops or lectures students, staff, and faculty are eligible to receive a Certificate of Participation. Please email rebecca.carnevale@queensu.ca with any questions.
