Principles

NAIT’s actions and attitudes on equity, diversity and inclusion will be guided by four principles, which form the foundation from which our communities will rise together.

Resourced 

NAIT has identified equity, diversity and inclusion as institutional commitments and we are mindful of them when allocating time, effort, budget and resources.

Iterative

The Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Strategy is a continuous project that evolves with our communities. The actions it inspires in our institution and in each of us will also evolve.

Shared responsibility

NAIT engages everyone to play an active role in building a more equitable, diverse and inclusive community.
