The College remains committed to incorporating principles of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) into all aspects of the work of College, its regulatory processes and, as appropriate, the profession at large.
The EDI Working Group has continued to address a variety of actions. These have included a discussion of the processes of the College Committees and how diversity practices can be introduced. The Jurisprudence and Ethics Examination Committee will be asked to review the exam to ensure questions being asked of registration candidates respect diversity and inclusion. The Quality Assurance Committee will be asked to consider incorporating EDI training as a requirement for Continued Professional Development. The Working Group is in the process of scheduling diversity training for the College leadership to include the College Council, Committees, and senior staff. At its upcoming meeting, the EDI Working Group will be reviewing a draft for the creation of a specific EDI webpage where we can provide appropriate EDI resources and regular EDI updates.
The next meeting is scheduled for the beginning of August.
