Our Co-op and Career team is creating new opportunities for co-op students and graduates by partnering with post-secondaries and industry.

Diversity, equity and inclusion survey

We strive to continuously improve our programming and support for employers, students, and graduates.

To support this goal, we have put together a literature review on the subject, and recently ran a survey to learn from students and employers about diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) priorities in the workplace. There were 1,604 student respondents and 209 employer respondents.

Survey respondents were entered into a prize draw and the winners are:

Employers (received a free booth registration at the upcoming West Coast Virtual Fair

  • Synergy Foundation
  • RJG Engineering
  • Momentum Energy

Students (received a top up for their OneCards)

  • Benjamin B Say
  • Fraser Jones
  • Yazen Alnoori
  • Priyanka Rai
  • Kiara Hosie
  • Cole Halston
  • Rebecca Marshall
  • Erin Hartley
  • Montana Edgington
  • Keenan Nuttall

Congratulations and thank you so much for your feedback!

Digital Technology Supercluster

UVic worked with Canada’s Digital Technology Supercluster to address the digital skills gap related to equity, diversity and inclusion in sectors that involve engineering and computer science students. 

Project summary

Thank you to all students, employers and industry members who participated. The insights you shared will inform how post-secondary institutions and industry build and improve digital skill development.
