Equity, Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging (EDI&B)

Equity, diversity, inclusion & belonging

Equity, diversity, inclusion and belonging (EDI&B) is a strategic priority at Georgian. We’re committed to fostering a learning and working environment where everyone feels seen, heard and knows they belong through demonstrable, accountable and system-wide commitments to diversity, de-colonization, anti-racism, equity and inclusion.

EDI&B education at Georgian

This spring, we’re featuring a Cultures of Belonging course for those wanting to explore the basics of equity, diversity and inclusion. If you feel lost about where to begin, this course is a great place to start! Georgian employees can learn more about enrolling for free, and others can register via Continuing Education.
