Equity Policy Committee
Carleton is committed to recruiting and attracting the broadest spectrum of expertise, knowledge and experience necessary to promote the best decision-making, and accelerate the kinds of research, teaching, and work excellence that drives the academic mission. The Equity Policy Committee is responsible to monitor and advance the university’s employment equity obligations under the Federal Contractor’s Program and to make recommendations to assess and improve our progress towards eliminating barriers and removing conditions of disadvantage in employment.

Its work includes the important process of consulting the Carleton community through the Strategic Planning Task Force to gather feedback and ideas that will inform the next Strategic Integrated Plan.
