In this issue:
Black Scholars Research Fund Recepient:
On the intersection of anti-Black racism and the field of accounting, very little research is to be traced. Dr. Akolisa Ufodike, Assistant Professor, School of Administrative Studies, and a successful recipient of the inaugural LA&PS Black Scholars Research Fund (BSRF), pays attention to this gap.
When it comes to equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) best practices, Dr. Ufodike argues that it is a demand issue, not a supply one. He explains: "In the US, we found that there have been significant increases in the enrollment of Black students; however, the demand in large accounting firms and senior roles has not changed over the same period."
Dr. Ufodike goes on to detail the problem by highlighting: "African-American graduates accounted for 9% of the supply and 4 % of the demand," referring to accounting graduates in the USA seeking employment in CPA firms. In other words, half of the Black accounting graduates who actively sought employment at Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) firms were unable to secure employment, which the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) has come to refer to as 'demand stagnation.'
Canada isn't better off. In fact, there are no data altogether because neither the CPA nor universities collect racial data on graduate and undergraduate students. In his quest, Dr. Ufodike has utilized an effective knowledge mobilization tool: The Conversation Canada, an independent and non-profit source of news, analysis and commentary from academic experts delivered directly to the public. His article tackled diversity on boards and institutional racism in corporations where he argued that companies should implement diversity targets similar to the gender diversity targets that have slowly helped increase the number of women on corporate boards across Canada. Contact Dr. Ufodike to learn more about his work.

New Service: Qualtrics for Researchers and faculty members
Update: Change to the SSHRC - Exchange Conference Grant
The SSHRC Exchange – Conference Grants contribute to the cost of the primary mode of travel for in-person participation in national and international scholarly conferences. However, COVID-19 has forced conferences to either be cancelled/postponed or held virtually for more than a year. The SSHRC Explore and Exchange Sub-Committee believes that moving forward it is likely that conferences will continue to be virtual for some time and that even once travel restrictions are lifted, they expect that many conferences will be offered both in-person and virtually on an ongoing basis.
Given this expected change to future conference options, the Committee is revising the SSHRC Exchange – Conference Grants to make registration fees eligible for virtual participation in conferences to support dissemination activities that do not require travel, to a maximum of $200. This change is effective for the August 1, 2021 deadline. The updated application form can now be accessed through LA&PS internal grants page or directly through here: Exchange Conference Grant - Application Form (PDF)
Update: Updated CIHR Spreadsheet (July 2021)
Due to the large volume of RFAs, the Office of Research Services has created a simplified Excel spreadsheet that will make it easier for researchers to locate the funding call that is most appropriate to their research area. To view the spreadsheet, please click on the link below. You will be required to enter your Passport York user ID and password for YU Link to gain access to the spreadsheet.

Pre-announcement: SSHRC Knowledge Synthesis Grants: The Emerging Asocial Society
- Value: $30,000
- Duration: 1 year
- Deadline: December 17, 2021
Recent research suggests that many people feel increasingly isolated and lonely. This trend is particularly prevalent in more developed countries, to the detriment of individual and societal well-being. Human inability to interact meaningfully without the intervention of technology could prompt questions regarding access, privacy, and ethics.
Knowledge Synthesis Grants support researchers in producing knowledge synthesis reports and evidence briefs that:
- support the use of evidence in decision-making and the application of best practices; and
- assist in developing future research agendas
While the grant has not been announced yet for this year, you can find more information about the most recent SSHRC knowledge Synthesis grant competition here.
If you have questions about this opportunity please contact Max Dagenais, Research Facilitator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Pre-announcement: Open Research Area for the social sciences

The ORA was created to strengthen international cooperation in social sciences by funding high-quality scientific research projects. SSHRC will support the participation of Canadian researchers from all disciplines of the social sciences and humanities. For general information, and to be notified when the call is announced, contact: email@example.com.
Pre-announcement: Race, Gender and Diversity Initiative coming soon
This Initiative aims to support partnership research to inform actions that address social disparities related to race, gender and other forms of diversity. With new funds outlined in Federal Budget 2021, SSHRC will soon launch the Race, Gender and Diversity Initiative. This strategic initiative will enhance society’s understanding of the causes and persistence of systemic racism and discrimination, and the impact of oppression on Canadians and our communities, and will help develop strategies to support greater justice and equity. The funding opportunity will launch in summer 2021 and For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
