Commitment Statement

The Centre d'études nordiques (CEN) views diversity of experience, perspectives, concerns and thoughts as a vital driver of creativity and research excellence. It is essential that the CEN community evolves in an inclusive, welcoming, empowering and egalitarian space for social justice so that its full potential can be realized and it can contribute significantly to the development of knowledge and innovative solutions to current northern environmental and societal issues. The CEN is actively committed to promoting equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) in all its research, training and outreach activities throughout, and beyond, its community.

Action Plan

The CEN, which holds the values of EDI dear, is currently working on its action plan, which will formalize its commitments with measurable objectives. This action plan will be a guide that can adapt to new ideas and the diversity of its members over the years.

In due course, CEN management will invite its members and partners to familiarize themselves with its EDI action plan, and to commit to working with it to achieve its objectives.

Code of Conduct at CEN Research Stations

As of the summer of 2021, everyone staying at CEN research stations is required to familiarize themselves with and abide by the CEN Code of Conduct at Research Stations.

This document was developed in collaboration with CEN members through discussion workshops and email consultations. This Code of Conduct is intended to be a living document and all CEN members are encouraged to suggest improvements at edi@cen.ulaval.ca.

EDI Committee

Members are also invited to share any successes, suggestions or concerns related to EDI.
