Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion Expectations & Obligations for Professionals
Establishing standards of practice, conduct, and competence for registrants is fundamental to Engineers and Geoscientists BC’s purpose as a regulatory body. We utilize professional practice guidelines to describe expectations and obligations of professional practice for both professional registrants and registrant firms. The recently published guidelines "Professional Practice Guidelines – Equity, Diversity and Inclusion" provide professional registrants with education and guidance on how to understand and apply equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) principles in their day-to-day practice, and for registrant firms to develop policies and procedures that support EDI principles.
The learning outcomes of the presentation are for participants to assess how EDI expectations and obligations can be incorporated into their own regulatory framework, and to consider what regulatory obligations and expectations may be appropriate for their registrant base. Polling and subsequent discussion will be utilized to brainstorm challenges and opportunities for the incorporation of EDI principles within the various regulatory frameworks of those participating. We hope to inspire attendees to learn from our experience and to consider incorporating these tools into their own regulatory regimes, as appropriate. As regulatory bodies we need to take a leading role in making our professions more inclusive, diverse, and continually striving for equity.
