Process for Equity Complaints and Concerns
As part of TWU’s EDI Action Plan we aim to prevent individual, institutional and systemic inequities. However, if such inequities occur, CRC chairholders can communicate concerns to their School or Faculty Dean, the Associate Provost Research and the Executive Director of Human Resources. TWU Human Resources addresses processes for dispute resolution as part of the TWU Human Resources Policies and Handbook. These concerns will also be raised and brought to the attention of the TWU CRC Steering Committee. The Associate Provost will meet with the chairholders at least once per year formally and more regularly on an informal basis to discuss their roles, concerns, experiences, and need for additional support. These meetings will serve as a safe space to identify and discuss any systemic issues.
