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. Additionally, scientists who are used to working with facts and figures cannot adequately write these statements without knowing what the literature says about EDI in science. Join Dr. Lisa Willis from the University of Alberta for a session which will provide researchers with the knowledge to write outstanding EDI statements, all based on the scientific literature. It includes information about the rationale for working with diverse scientific teams, the current numbers for diversity in Canadian STEM, and the controlled studies demonstrating bias in STEM. We will also discuss mechanisms for integrating good EDI principles with the daily lab environment and how to incorporate this information into effective EDI statements.
