UCalgary launches data EDI dashboard to provide community with access to key metrics, data

April 7, 2021
The University of Calgary’s Office of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion has launched an Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) dashboard. The EDI dashboard is designed for use by students, faculty, and staff, and includes key metrics and data that can be used to identify gaps and inform policy and procedures at the university. “We can act on what we track,” said Dr Malinda Smith, UCalgary vice-provost (equity, diversity and inclusion). “Data can help reveal systemic inequities, the hidden barriers and obstacles that may block entry to the academy for historically under-represented groups. It can help identify diversity gaps, pay gaps, obstacles to entry or hurdles to promotion for specific groups.” UCalgary (AB)
