Between May 4 and 7, NDRIO will host a series of Virtual Town Hall events as the latest consultation step in the Canadian Digital Research Infrastructure (DRI) Needs Assessment.

These events are an opportunity for researchers and the broader research community to validate and provide further feedback on NDRIO’s consultations to date as relates to DRI usage, or the tools and services required to support research excellence. These consultations were conducted over the past four months through a call for White Papers and Current Documentation, as well as a survey of researchers across Canada.

The Virtual Town Halls (four events in English; four in French) are open to researchers in Canada from across disciplines, levels of engagement with DRI tools and research experience. We hope that you will share this event information with your networks to encourage participation.

Virtual Town Hall event timing, themes and registration links are as follows:

Further event details can be found on our website. To participate, registration is required and will be available until Friday, April 30. Be sure to register now as participation is limited to 150 people per session. A document and video summarizing NDRIO’s preliminary findings will be shared with attendees to guide the discussions.

On behalf of NDRIO, I am deeply appreciative of the community’s engagement in the Needs Assessment process to date, which will allow us to better serve Canada’s researchers by informing the development of our National Service Delivery Model and 2022-2025 Strategic Plan. We look forward to more meaningful discussions ahead.

If you have questions or comments about our Virtual Town Halls, our Needs Assessment consultations, or any of our activities, please reach out to us at NDRIO-NOIRN@engagedri.ca.

VIU Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Symposium Webinar: March 24 and 25

Event Date: 
Wednesday, March 24, 2021 - 8:30am EDT to Thursday, March 25, 2021 - 3:00pm EDT
Event Location: 
online

Background

As a values-based institution, VIU is committed to improving its community with a safe and inclusive environment for all. VIU has taken a proactive stance in equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) issues. Knowing that other universities across Canada are also developing or implementing their EDI plans, VIU invited members of the Alliance of Canadian Comprehensive Research Universities (ACCRU), a network of small and medium-sized comprehensive universities from across Canada, to join a community of practice and collaborate in a symposium about the best practices for EDI Action Plans. 

VIU led the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council’s (SSHRC) Connection Grant to fund the symposium that will provide a venue for collaboration, discussions and shared learning around equity, diversity and inclusion action planning. The purpose of the symposium is to provide a space for the participating universities to collaboratively develop a deeper understanding of research-based EDI best practices, including how to build institutional capacity; how to handle resistance to advancement of EDI on campuses; how to manage institutional cultural shifts when prioritizing EDI at universities; how to effectively apply an intersectional lens to EDI action and analysis; and the legal and human rights aspects of EDI. The event will take place over two days (March 24-25) with sessions ranging from presentation of data to interactive workshops.

KT Connects - DecolonizinResearch: Collecting Two-Spirit Data in Culturally Affirming Ways

Speaker - Harlan Pruden (Nehiyô/First Nations Cree) Educator - Chee Mamuk, BC Center for Disease Control

Centering Two-Spirit and Indigenous experiences and ways is critical for more respectful, reciprocal, relevant, and responsible health research. Two-Spirit is often equated to an LGBTQ Indigenous participant; thereby, rendering this community’s unique experience and history invisible and erasing important distinctions. This type of scholarship becomes a site of colonization. The challenge is how to collect Two-Spirit data that in culturally safe and affirming ways, so health research(ers) are given the opportunity to do rigorous sex- and gender-based analysis that promotes science that considers biological sex and accounts for all genders in an effort to expand our collective understanding(s) within a diversity framework. This presentation examines some decolonizing practices to better formulate health research, policies and programs that are relevant, respectful and mindful to Two-Spirit people and communities or in other words be a site of reconcilia(c)tion in research.

Learning objectives:
1. Explore what and who is Two-Spirit and differences between non-Indigenous understandings, notions and ways such as LGBTQI
2. Discuss practical guidance of best practices for doing more respectful, reciprocal, relevant, and responsible (decolonizing) health research
3. Receive recently published guidance on how to collect Two-Spirit data in a culturally affirming and sensitive way - “Meet the Methods Series: ‘What and Who is Two-Spirit?”’ in Health Research.”

Harlan Pruden (Nehiyô/First Nations Cree)
Educator @Chee Mamuk, BC Center for Disease Control (BCCDC)
Harlan Pruden works with and for the Two-Spirit community locally, nationally and internationally. Currently, Harlan is an Educator at Chee Mamuk, an Indigenous public health program at BCCDC and is also a co-founder of the Two-Spirit Dry Lab, North America’s first research group/lab that exclusively focuses on Two-Spirit people, communities and/or experiences. Harlan is also the Managing Editor of the TwoSpiritJournal.com and an Advisory Member for the Canadian Institutes of Health Research’s Institute of Gender and Health. Before relocating to Vancouver in 2015, Harlan was co-founder and a Director of NYC community based organization, the NorthEast Two-Spirit Society and was a President Obama appointee to the US Presidential Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS (PACHA) and provided advice, information, and recommendations to the Secretary of Health & Human Services and the White House. (In December 2018, Harlan was (happily) fired/dismissed from PACHA by Mr. Trump via Fedex.)

 

Voice and Agency: Women in Science, Health and Policy

Event Date: 
Friday, March 5, 2021 - 2:00pm to 3:30pm EST
Event Location: 
Virtual
About the event
The 2021 International Women's Day is taking place during a global pandemic which has very clearly demonstrated and further entrenched the well known gender inequities that exist in society, in science, in academia, in medicine and in policy. These inequities are further amplified when viewed through an intersectional lens. As we look ahead to a time when the pandemic is behind us, what lessons can we take from our COVID19 experience when we consider building a more equitable science, health and policy in the future.
