With the spotlight on equity and inclusion during Carleton University’s Inclusion Week, our team at the Centre for Research on Inclusion at Work (CRIW) is excited to announce CRIW’s Research Library, highlighting workplace inclusion research.

Hosted at Carleton University’s Sprott School of Business, CRIW’s research focus is on the inclusion of under-represented populations at work, including women, immigrants, visible minorities, and Indigenous individuals, among others.

Over the past few months, CRIW has been working on creating a Research Library. The library is a depository of easy-to-read “Research Highlights” that share relevant and actionable information about workplace inclusion with a broad audience.

One of the Research Highlights is How Corporations use ‘Merit’ and ‘Diversity’ Terms to keep Women out of Corporate Boards.

To view more Research Highlights, please visit CRIW’s research streams, “The Influence of Gender at Work” and “Immigrant Participation at Work” and scroll down to ‘Research Library’.

“The first step towards change is information and awareness,” said CRIW Co-Director Dr. Merridee Bujaki. “I am really excited to share our collective knowledge with others in the broader community that are working towards more inclusive workplaces.”

CRIW Co-Director, Dr. Andrew Webb, agrees. “I am certainly inspired by the expertise CRIW research brings together.” he said. “It is our goal to share the breadth of knowledge collected over time on workplace inclusion.”

As part of CRIW’s efforts to encourage and support others in conducting research to seek innovative solutions towards more inclusive workplaces, we host a series of research events and activities over the course of each year.
