What is the difference between equity and equality? How can I acknowledge my own privilege? What does it mean to be an ally?
LinkedIn Learning Club @ McMaster launches a new campaign for the month of June exploring the important topic of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) through a collection of hand-picked videos.
This month’s offerings were selected by Eline Gonzalez, a fourth-year bachelor of science student and LinkedIn Learning ambassador, and reviewed by the Equity and Inclusion Office at McMaster.
“This collection of videos offers students a great introduction to the DEI framework,” said Gonzalez. “After completing the collection, students will be able to define important DEI concepts, recognize privilege within themselves and others, and understand how to be an ally for marginalized peers.”
Jeannie An, McMaster LinkedIn Learning campus coordinator and Ron Joyce Centre research services librarian, says that DEI training is an integral component to fostering a more inclusive environment on campus.
“We’ve chosen to launch this campaign now so that students can have a strong grasp on DEI ahead of their return to campus this fall,” said An.
