Purpose

The RDI office helps BCIT foster a respectful and inclusive working and learning environment by creating awareness and belonging through education, events, and training.  The RDI team provides assistance and support to individuals with concerns of bullying, harassment, and discrimination and strives to help people resolve conflicts informally. We also assist individuals who have formal complaints and coordinate workplace investigations.
