Guide to Inclusive Practices

Engineers and Geoscientists BC recognizes the importance and value of equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) within the organization and within the professions of engineering and geoscience. Part of this commitment includes ensuring our volunteers have the resources and information that they need to conduct themselves in alignment with our values in their roles as representatives of Engineers and Geoscientists BC.

Our Guide to Inclusive Practices is a resource intended to support our volunteers, however, the content may also be relevant to other registrants and organizations. The Guide to Inclusive Practices currently includes sections on:

  • Roles and Responsibilities
  • Inclusive Meeting Facilitation
  • Inclusive Presentations
  • Inclusive Language
  • Use of Pronouns
  • Land Acknowledgement
  • Inclusive Mentorship

Components will be added to this guide over time as new material becomes available.

Core Concepts

Advancing EDI is a journey that individuals and organizations embark on at different stages and paces. Engineers and Geoscientists BC recognize that individual volunteers will be at different stages of understanding and application of EDI practices. The Guide to Inclusive Practices is intended to support you, regardless of where you are in that EDI journey.

In addition to the Guide, we’ve also developed Core Concept sheets, which are 1 page documents that highlight various sections of this resource. The Core Concept sheets are available in an online and print-friendly version below.
