Practicing inclusive and equitable faculty and staff performance reviews

Text reads 'Equity and Inclusion in Action: JEDII STEM Series.' Three people are talking.


Performance and merit reviews can be difficult conversations to navigate. Join this JEDII STEM Series session to discuss characteristics of inclusive and equitable performance and review processes. If there are any units who have created changes in their performance review process in order to promote justice, equity or inclusion and would be willing to share their lessons learned, please contact

*The JEDII STEM Series offers regular, informal educational sessions on topics ranging from considering JEDII within your research program to setting up inclusive search processes for faculty and staff. Learn more about the series.

What to expect

In this session, we will discuss:

  • What are the characteristics of an inclusive and equitable merit and performance review process for faculty and staff?
  • What changes have units made to embed inclusive excellence within their performance review processes?


Who can join

The JEDII STEM Series is open to faculty, staff, postdoctoral fellows and graduate students engaged in integrating Justice, Equity, Decolonization, Indigenization and Inclusion in their units.

While this series originated as a collaboration between the Faculty of Science, Applied Science and the Equity Office, people from different academic and non-academic units are welcome. Many of the guests and participants are from non-STEM fields as the topics covered are relevant to units across the university.
