Tri-Agency grants are now evaluated on the researcher’s ability to incorporate Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) within their research plan. This workshop will provide researchers with an overview of the best practices and strategies for successfully developing an EDI plan for grant applications. Researchers will learn a framework for thinking about EDI in research and connect EDI with various parts of grant proposals. The workshop will also include interactive examples and a chance for researchers to ask questions.
Researchers who attend this workshop will be able to:

  • Understand how EDI is related to research
  • Learn how to implement EDI practices within their research plans and grant applications
  • Gain valuable resources (both internally and externally) that will aid them in developing an EDI research plan

Attending and participating in this workshop is a prerequisite course for researchers who wish to complete the Lakehead University Certificate in Inclusive Research Leadership Program.
