Name of creator
The Office of Gender and Equity Issues is the coordinating centre for gender, sexual harassment and employment equity issues in the Faculty of Medicine. The office is led by the Director who reports to the Dean of the faculty. Upon creation, the primary goal of the office was to promote equal participation in employment and education for women, aboriginal peoples, persons with disabilites, and visible minorities. Supporting this were the goals to discourage discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, to collaborate with other universities and community groups with similar mandates or goals, and to promote equity in the content and teaching of curricula, to foster equity in research, and to foster equity in participation in committees and leadership positions for women, aboriginal peoples, persons with disabilties, and visible minorities.
