Aurora signs Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Canada (Dimensions) Charter

Aurora College has announced that it has signed the Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Canada (Dimensions) Charter. By signing the charter, Aurora has committed to embedding EDI principles in its policies, practices, and action plans, and will continue to use these principles to guide its transition into a polytechnic. “This tool allows different voices to be heard, acknowledged and valued,” said Aurora President Dr Glenda Vardy Dell. “Adopting this approach across the college reminds all of us that the expression of our honest impressions, thoughts and attitudes are acceptable without the fear of ridicule.” Aurora says that it is the first Northern postsecondary institution to sign the charter.
