Welcome to part 1 of the Decolonizing, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (DEDI) Toolkit! This toolkit focuses on you – your lived experiences and strengths, your biases, how you can use your skills to contribute to DEDI work, and more. There are five reflective questions for you to explore which will help you build the internal tools and skills needed to engage in meaningful decolonizing, equity, and inclusion work.
While part 1 of the toolkit (available now) is focused on reflection, part 2 of the toolkit (coming soon!) will focus on concrete tools needed to enact the DEDI strategy.
Decolonizing, Equity, Diversity & Inclusion
A Toolkit to accompany the DEDI Strategy
This resource was created to support everyone in the York community in actualizing the university wide Decolonizing, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Strategy. It aims to support effective decolonization strategies and to make our campus, our community, and our world a more inclusive and equitable space.
A French version of the toolkit will also be available in the coming months, and you can also access the content in French by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
