For the fifth consecutive year, U of T was named one of Canada’s top diversity employers according to a Mediacorp survey.

The annual survey ranks companies and institutions based on their hiring and support of employees who are women, visible minorities, disabled, Aboriginal, or LGBTQ.

Vice-president of human resources and equity Angela Hildyard said the award is a “tribute to the commitment shown by staff and faculty in every division to ensuring our workplace is a diverse and equitable one.”

U of T consistently hires underrepresented groups and supports current employees through organizing groups such as the Queer U of T Employee Resource Group and providing seminars on mental health accommodations in the workplace.
