Equity in Action

Commitment to Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Indigenization (EDII)

Equity in the School of Kinesiology and Health Studies (SKHS) is achieved by proactively taking collective responsibility for fostering safety, diversity, accessibility, inclusion and anti-racism in our teaching, research and practice. 

Our programs in Kinesiology and Health Studies are highly interdisciplinary and center issues related to social justice in the contexts of health, sport and physical activity. In response to the current global calls for action to address anti-Black racism and colonial violence, we showcase work being done in the School to address race, racism and Indigeneity.

Initiatives in SKHS: Spotlight on Race, Racism and Indigeneity

The SKHS Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Indigenization (EDII) Committee is seeking an Undergraduate Student Representative

Are you interested in issues of social justice, diversity, and equity? Do you identify as a member of a traditionally marginalized group (e.g., LGBTQ+, BIPOC, disabled, fat)? Do you have ideas about how to make SKHS more equitable?

The SKHS EDII Committee is looking for TWO undergraduate students (1 from KIN, 1 from HLTH) to join for the 2023-2024 academic year. We are looking for students who can:

  • Participate in one meeting per month for the school year (meetings are 1.5hrs)
  • Dedicate 1-2 hours per month to EDII committee work
  • Speak to issues that specifically affect undergraduate students in our School
  • Work with other SKHS groups such as PHEKSA, Health DSC, faculty, and staff to carry out action items

Interested students should email a maximum 500-word explanation of why you would be an appropriate student representative for the EDII committee. We do NOT need to see your CV, resume, or transcript for this position. Please email your written explanation to Katherine Mazurok at skhs.admin@queensu.ca by May 1, 2023.
