EDI Statements in Research Grant Applications with Dr. Lisa Willis - August 24th - 12:00 pm Hosted by University of Windsor's Office of Research and Innovation Services. Writing effective EDI statements workshop – EDI statements are now required for Tri-Agency funding applications but most researchers do not know what goes into one.
