Commitment to Equity

Osgoode Hall Law School is committed to the principles of equality and diversity, and inclusion, broadly understood. We are particularly interested in candidates with diverse backgrounds and especially encourage candidates in equity, diversity and inclusion categories. As a part of this commitment, the Law School’s Employment Equity Plan aims to increase the representation on faculty of members from five groups: women, racialized persons, Indigenous persons, persons with disabilities, and LGBTQ2+ persons.  Persons identifying as members of these equity-seeking groups are particularly encouraged to apply.

Osgoode Hall Law School is committed to working towards a barrier-free workplace and to expanding the accessibility of the workplace to persons with disabilities.

York University recognizes the legitimate impact that leaves such as maternity leave, parental leave, or leave due to illness, may have on a candidate’s record of achievement. Applicants are encouraged to explain in their application the impact that career interruptions may have had on their record of research achievement; this will be taken into careful consideration during the assessment process.
