Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

​​Érudit’s mission – to support open digital publishing and research in the arts, humanities, and social sciences. – is at the heart of our commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion.

Érudit responds to a diversity of needs and interests via our partner libraries, our accessible scientific and cultural journals, and the visits that over 5 million people around the world make each year to the erudit.org platform. The journals disseminated on Érudit reflect the wide range of Canadian and global scholarly and cultural production in the humanities and social sciences.

Erudit is committed to a broad vision of equity, diversity and inclusion that reflects our openness, our collaborative approach, and our partnerships. This commitment aims to bring greater visibility to underrepresented groups in Canada, including women, Indigenous Peoples, persons with disabilities, members of racialized groups or visible minorities, and members of LGBTQ2+ communities. Considering the Canadian context, special attention will be given to Indigenous Peoples.

Érudit endorses Université de Montréal’s vision on equity, diversity and inclusion and its two 2020-2023 action plans, Pour l’équité et l’inclusion and Place aux Premiers Peuples (available in French only). We are working towards the action plans’ objectives, including:

  • making our workplace more inclusive and representative of the diverse communities we serve;
  • making the university an inclusive environment;
  • promoting equity and inclusion in the content and services we offer, in our team, in the activities we conduct, and in the research we carry out;
  • and supporting our partners in their initiatives to improve equity and inclusion.

Like Érudit’s associated universities, Université de Montréal, Université Laval and Université du Québec à Montréal (UQÀM), and our funders, we understand that highly diverse research ecosystems are crucial for increasing quality, relevance, creativity and impact in learning and research.

Érudit’s three associated universities, as well as Simon Fraser University, partner university of the Public Knowledge Project, with which we collaborate in Coalition Publica, have all signed the Dimensions Charter, a “pilot program to foster increased research excellence, innovation and creativity within the postsecondary sector across all disciplines through greater equity, diversity and inclusion.”

Érudit endorses the principles of the Dimensions Charter.
