Recognized as one of Canada's Best Diversity Employers

Here are some of the reasons why University of Manitoba was selected as one of Canada's Best Diversity Employers (2018):

  • As part of the University of Manitoba's mental health strategy, the organization maintains a "Champions for Mental Health" working group, responsible for implementing strategy recommendations -- additionally, the university recently hosted its second mental health week called Live Well @ Work to encourage staff and faculty to take care mentally, physically, emotionally, spiritually and socially
  • One of the university's strategic priorities is to create pathways to Indigenous achievement for First Nations, Métis and Inuit students and graduates, create an inclusive culture, hire more Indigenous faculty, researchers and traditional knowledge holders and Elders, and enhance career and professional development supports for existing Indigenous staff
  • To support this priority, University of Manitoba created Gaa wii ji'i diyaang, a council of Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples walking together and helping to create a community through relationship building, education, advocacy and action -- the university also maintains an Indigenous Advisory Circle to advise on further developing its 5-year Indigenous Achievement Action Plan
