COVID-19 Message to the Community from the Executive Director, Equity, Diversity & Inclusion


I am writing to provide an update on the operations of University of Toronto Equity Offices and Office of Indigenous Initiatives listed here:

We remain open and available to provide support to members of our community. As of March 17, 2020, we will predominately be providing our services remotely through phone and video conferencing. Signage will go up at each of our locations and messaging will be on our website that addresses these operational changes and encourages individuals to contact us by phone or e-mail to set-up an appointment.

We hope to be able to return to standard operations in the coming weeks.

We remain dedicated to ensuring accessible equity support and services and uphold our commitment to confidentiality and privacy. Requests for in-person appointments will be assessed on an individual basis. Please note that we will not be taking drop-in appointments at this time.

Our hours remain the same, Monday to Friday, from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. To access support, please send an email or call any of our offices directly. Email addresses and phone numbers can be found at

Wishing you all well.

Thank you,

Karima Hashmani
Executive Director,
Equity, Diversity & Inclusion
