Carleton University’s Centre for Research and Education on Women and Work (CREWW) today announced it is expanding its research scope to focus on inclusion of under-represented populations at work and changing its name to the Centre for Research on Inclusion at Work (CRIW).
Founded in 1992, CREWW’s aim was to champion the advancement of women at work through research and education. The Centre recently broadened its mission to conducting and sharing research that advances diversity, equity and inclusion at work.
No longer focusing only on women, CRIW’s research focus is on the inclusion of under-represented populations at work, including women, immigrants, visible minorities, and indigenous individuals, among others.
CRIW co-directors, Dr. Merridee Bujaki and Dr. Luciara Nardon, commented on the change. “We wanted to not only be more inclusive of current conceptualizations of gender, but also continue to expand knowledge around participation at work,” commented Dr. Bujaki. “After extensive consultations, expanding our research scope to inclusion of under-represented populations at work seemed like a natural evolution of our mission.”
“We are excited about the change,” added Dr. Nardon. “We are actively building a network of scholars, Sprott graduate students and the broader community to pursue a broad range of research interests and seek innovative solutions towards more inclusive workplaces.”
Details on CRIWs areas of research and how to get involved can be found at the centre’s website, carleton.ca/criw.
