Imogen Coe and the CSMB applaud the announcement of the Dimensions: Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Canada charter

The CSMB applauds the announcement of the Dimensions: Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Canada charter, which is an important step Canada is making towards fully realising its full research potential across all disciplines, by leveraging all its available talent. Its implementation by post-secondary institutions across the country will encourage the emergence of new ideas, perspectives and stories that will lead to new solutions and strengthen Canada’s research enterprise, including, but not limited to, science. The CSMB and its members look forward to continuing its collaboration and contribution to initiatives such as this one, which are in Canada’s best interest.

Dr. Imogen Coe, who is currently Vice-President of the CSMB, has been one of the strongest advocates for the charter and has been actively involved in supporting the development of the Dimensions Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Canada charter. She was present at the launch of the initiative, at the invitation of the Minister of Science and Sport, the honourable Kirsty Duncan. On the occasion of the launch, Dr. Coe wrote the following remarks to the CSMB Board of Directors. + + +

Participate in the government of Canada consultations in advance of Budget 2019

The House of Commons Standing Committee on Finance (FINA) has released its report of pre-budget consultations held this Fall. The full report, titled Cultivating Competitiveness: helping Canadians succeed, is available here:

http://www.ourcommons.ca/DocumentViewer/en/42-1/FINA/report-27/

We invite you to read this document, as it is instructional on how to position science, research funding, universities and research institutes in the context of the objectives the government wants to reach in the next budget.  There is no specific section that focuses on science, but it is rather interwoven into innovation, education, healthcare, job creation, environment and climate change.  Science is integrated in all these areas, and scientists can advocate at all these levels – and work with the government to help them achieve common goals. + + +
