RAEON EDI Statement
Following the leadership of The University of Windsor, RAEON is equally committed to ensuring that researchers involved in the network are provided with an equitable, diverse, and inclusive (EDI) environment. In support of this, RAEON has established a 10% reduction in equipment loan fees for researchers in science who identify as belonging to an equity-seeking group. EDI criteria have been determined by the University of Windsor’s CRC EDI Action Plan, which has established 4 federally designated groups: Women, Visible Minorities, Persons with Disabilities, and Aboriginal Peoples. The University of Windsor also recognizes one additional group: Sexual/Gender Minorities.
In addition to these groups, RAEON recognizes early career researchers (ECR), defined by the Canadian tri-agency as applicants who have held their first independent academic position within the last five years.
RAEON has also established an EDI award which will provide up to $10,000 CDN in research costs/fees to 1 project per year (in-kind support). Please visit our equipment loan page for more information.
