We ask applicants to faculty positions at the UBC Sauder School of Business to complete the following equity survey. The link to the survey is https://ubc.ca1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_aVtaMWjwsMEcO4l.
Your participation is voluntary and anonymous. The information will not be used to determine eligibility for employment. The answers will be collated to provide data that can assist us in understanding the diversity of our applicant pool and identifying potential barriers to the employment of designated equity group members. This survey takes only a minute to complete. You may self-identify in one or more of the designated equity groups. You may decline to identify in any or all of the questions by choosing "prefer not to disclose." Thank you in advance for your participation.
Equity and diversity are essential to academic excellence. An open and diverse community fosters the inclusion of voices that have been underrepresented or discouraged. We encourage applications from members of groups that have been marginalized on any grounds enumerated under the B.C. Human Rights Code, including sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, racialization, disability, political belief, religion, marital or family status, age, and/or status as a First Nation, Métis, Inuit, or Indigenous person. All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and permanent residents of Canada will be given priority.
