Brief Diversity Survey

for applicants expressing interest in the Canada 150 Research Chairs program

In our efforts to fulfill McMaster’s commitment to diversity, equity and inclusivity, you are invited to complete a brief diversity survey, as part of the application process.  The survey is voluntary and will take approximately two minutes.  All information collected is confidential and will not be shared with the selection committee. The results of the survey are for institutional planning purposes, and support our efforts to promote diversity, equity, and inclusivity.  Having this new information on our workforce provides McMaster the opportunity to identify any barriers in employment practices for members of designated groups and develop measures to eliminate them.

Responses will be anonymized when they are analyzed and reported in an aggregate form for employment equity purposes.

If you do not wish to complete the diversity survey,  please check the “I do not want to complete the diversity survey” box below.  In addition, each question allows you to select “I do not wish to answer this question” as a response.


McMaster University is located on the traditional territories of the Haudenosaunee and Mississauga Nations and, within the lands protected by the “Dish With One Spoon” wampum agreement.
