HEC Montréal has adopted a policy on equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) containing guiding principles intended to orient our commitments and actions and guide the everyday behaviour of our community members.
Adopting this policy is part of HEC Montréal’s efforts to provide our community with a healthy, safe and respectful working and living environment that values equity, diversity and inclusion.
We are also taking concrete actions in accordance with this priority, such as fostering an inclusive educational approach, supporting projects that encourage EDI and raising awareness.
The School does not tolerate any form of exclusion. Our EDI policy gives us the means to prevent inappropriate behaviour and react swiftly to discrimination on any of the 14 grounds prohibited by law: age, social condition, political convictions, civil status, pregnancy, handicap, language, sexual orientation, race, colour, ethnic or national origin, religion, and sex. For more information, see the Commission des droits de la personne et des droits de la jeunesse website.
At HEC Montréal, everyone is expected to behave in accordance with the principles of our EDI policy and to adopt its best practices.
In the next few weeks, we will publish a practical guide to your EDI responsibilities.
The HEC Montréal Board of Directors adopted the Policy on Equity, Diversity and Inclusion on October 29, 2020. The definitive text of this policy was established following a consultation with members of our community.
