Diversity Counts

Diversity counts on our campuses. At RRC Polytech, we are committed to pursuing equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) in everything we do – and to do this, we need to know who’s here at the College. By completing the Diversity Self-Identification Survey, you will help us assess our current EDI initiatives, programs and policies and help us make meaningful progress in our shared priorities.

How to Self-Identify

As part of our commitment to an inclusive and diverse community, we are asking all staff and students to self-identify as belonging to one or more of the following equity-deserving groups:

  • Women
  • Indigenous peoples
  • Persons with disabilities
  • Racialized persons
  • Persons of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community

We recognize that some staff and students may have already self-identified earlier this year or in previous years. We encourage all students, staff and faculty to complete the 2022 Diversity Self-Identification Survey – even if you do not belong to any of the designated equity groups – to help gain a better understanding of our College community.

Your voice matters. #CountMeINcluded

  • It’s easy – the Diversity Self-Identification Survey takes about two minutes to complete.
  • It’s voluntary – staff and students can choose to participate and chose which questions to answer.
  • It’s confidential – only limited individuals will have access to information and only aggregate data will be reported.
  • It’s impactful – your participation will help us assess diversity and representation within RRC Polytech, and in turn, support with informing future inclusive programming and initiatives.

Self-identifying is about more than numbers. It’s about learning and understanding the strength in our differences; fostering a culture that is inclusive and where students and staff feel safe and a sense of belonging; identifying and removing barriers to access and participation; and creating learning and work environments where students and staff can succeed.
