Best Practices for Building Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Strategies into your Research Proposals

Many federal and provincial research funding opportunities now require researchers to develop Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) plans within research proposals to address new evaluation criteria. The objective of this workshop is to provide Lakehead University researchers in all disciplines with the knowledge, best practices and and strategies to enable them to successfully develop EDI plans as part of research funding proposals such as NFRF, CRC, NSERC, SSHRC, CIHR, etc.

Through the lens of a research plan, we will:
1) Explore the value of EDI within the research process and how that can be captured in your research proposal;

2) Focus on the research team by understanding how bias impacts recruitment and hiring & best practices to mitigate that bias

3) Gain strategies to work towards an inclusive team environment to work towards better team retention

This workshop is also a prerequisite course for researchers who wish to complete the Lakehead University-CCDI Inclusive Research Leadership Certificate Program.

Presented by: Miriam Chaisson; Manager, Learning at CCDI (Canadian Centre for Diversity and Inclusion). Miriam Chiasson joined CCDI as Manager, Learning in 2021.  Her interest in diversity and inclusion stems from her BA in History and Anthropology, after completing her Master’s in Library and Information Science. 

Please contact Anne Klymenko, Director, Research Services (aklymenk@lakeheadu.ca) for additional details.

The Office of Research Services is hosting a webinar on Safeguarding Science, to be presented by Public Safety Canada.

Recent efforts by the Government of Canada to protect national research and innovation has resulted in new policies and best practices for assessing the security risks associated with chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear research efforts.

 These policies have direct implications on research done at post-secondary institutions, including Lakehead University, and are also having an impact on Tri-agency funding application procedures. Recent changes to the NSERC Alliance program have already been implemented, and completion of a new security risk assessment tool is now required of applicants.  Similar requirements will be rolled out by other funding agencies in the future.  

To learn more about how these policies may impact your research, how best to assess potential security risks in your research, and how to develop a risk mitigation strategy, please join us and Public Safety Canada for this online information session on October 27th, 2021 from 1:00 – 2:30 pm.   

Please email events.research@lakeheadu.ca to register.  A Microsoft Team Meeting link will be provided to registrants.
