Denise Devlin-Li, Dean of Humber’s School of Applied Technology was honoured this year as the inaugural recipient of the Humber Diversity Committee, Human Rights, Equity and Inclusion Award for 2015-2016. The award, which recognizes outstanding dedication and commitment to increase inclusiveness, was presented on International Women’s Day by Nancy Simms, Director of Humber’s Centre for Human Rights, Equity & Diversity

Ms. Devlin-Li’s efforts have had a measurable effect: for more than 2 years, at least 700 students in Applied Technology programs receive human rights education in one of their classes and over 98% of full-time faculty have completed human rights training; this year, more than 1200 students as well as 250 faculty have attended a LBTQ+ inclusive training.

These statistics notwithstanding, the impact that championing these activities have toward shaping attitudes and empowering others to support equity and diversity extends beyond measure.

Congratulations, Denise! Thank you for being a role model and leader in addressing complex equity issues and advancing equity and inclusion at Humber
