Ikram Jama

Ikram is currently the Senior Advisor in Equity and Human Rights in the Department of Equity and Inclusive Communities, a role she has held since 2019 when she was promoted from the role of Equity Advisor. Since joining Carleton in 2017, she has made significant contributions in advancing equity and human rights across the university by focusing on creating spaces of transformative learning and engagement and demonstrating a commitment to collaboration and developing a shared vision. Ikram is a Carleton alumna with a Bachelor of Honours in Sociology and Master of Arts in Political Science.

I would also like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to Michael Charles, for his remarkable service as Assistant Vice-President and University Advisor, Equity and Inclusive Communities. As previously announced, Michael is taking on a new professional challenge as Centennial College’s Associate Vice-President Equity, Diversity and Inclusion.

Please join me in congratulating Ikram on her appointment to this important role.
