Interview with Dr. Ayesha Khan
Exploring Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in Education
Keywords:Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, Student Experience
Equity, Diversity and Inclusion, or EDI, is a central topic in Science today. EDI refers to the approach where individuals from a diverse pool are given the same opportunities. Additionally, there are differences among the people in the group. Further, dissimilarities are respected and celebrated. In this interview, Dr. Ayesha Khan shares what EDI means to her as a professor at McMaster University. Her relationship with EDI is an ongoing learning process that she is achieving with the help and guidance of students. Advocating for student empowerment is aligned with her teaching philosophy and EDI principles. However, introducing EDI topics in course content can bring challenges in how best to present sensitive materials. Dr. Khan’s personal goal is to inform students about EDI so that they can share these ideas with others.
