Each year, INRS conducts an awareness campaign to improve the recognition and inclusion of group members who may be subject to discrimination. Every year, the issues placed at the center of awareness-raising activities evolve.
Participate in the activities organized as part of the campaign Together for ethnocultural diversity and familiarize yourself with the awareness tools available on the following pages. Contribute to provide inclusive and safe environments for your peers.
As members of the INRS community, we are not always aware of the situations that the people we work or study with are experiencing. The first mission of these campaigns is to shed light on these realities and make them clearer and more concrete.
It is not always easy to know how to act or react when we become aware of realities that we are not familiar with. Campaigns also provide tools and resources for action. They inform us about ways to help make our environment more inclusive for everyone.
Anyone integrating a new environment wants to feel accepted. By displaying LGBTQ2+ or ethnocultural diversity stickers, the INRS community sends a message of mobilization and openness about diversity. People coming to INRS know who they can turn to for identity and inclusion issues.
An inclusive environment is one where all people are respected equally, feel safe and enjoy the same benefits. At INRS, all variables are included.
Discrimination, homophobia, transphobia, or racism can have negative effects on the life course and experiences of those who experience them in higher education and in the workplace. The consequences are significant, especially on the climate, level of anxiety, and sense of security and belonging.
In Quebec, sections 10 and 10.1 of the Charter of Human Rights and Freedoms prohibit discrimination and harassment based on sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, language, race, color and ethnic or national origin.
No form of incivility, discrimination or harassment should be tolerated at INRS. If you are a victim of such behaviour, you can file a complaint, anonymously or not.
