SDG 5: Gender Equality

UN SDG 5 Gender Equality Icon.

We champion diversity of experiences, ideas, cultures, and perspectives, fostering a community permeated with equality and inclusivity.

Putting people at the core of everything we do is paramount. Our mandate is to educate people, and the people with whom we work are what make BCIT distinct. In a world characterized by uncertainty, we must ensure that BCIT is a place in which all people—learners, faculty, and staff—are continuously developing while feeling valued, supported, and connected.

The Respect, Diversity and Inclusion department helps BCIT foster a respectful and inclusive working and learning environment by creating awareness and belonging through education, events, and training.

The theme for the 2022 International Women’s Day is “Break the Bias”. Bias, whether deliberate or unconscious, makes it difficult for women to move ahead. BCIT offers a free online course which aims to help us all understand ourselves and our world better through an examination of our own unconscious biases. Learn more about the Understanding Unconscious Bias course and how BCIT is contributing to SDG 5 below.
