EMMEDIA's commitment to representing the diversity of the media arts community is stitched into the fabric of our organization.

EMMEDIA's Commitment to Diversity and Inclusivity

EMMEDIA is conscious and committed to making space for the diversity of both our employees and our Artist Affiliates. As an ethnically and culturally diverse media arts centre, we encourage everyone to represent their cultural beliefs and practices in our environment free from discrimination, harassment or prejudice. At EMMEDIA, we intend to foster a culture of inclusion free of all forms of discrimination and violence, where people are treated with respect and committed to deepening appreciation of diversity and transforming all forms of exclusion. It is EMMEDIA's policy to foster an environment that respects people's dignity, ideas and beliefs, thereby ensuring Artist Affiliates and others have equal access to our facilities, equipment and services. We prohibit discrimination on the basis of race, ancestry, place of origin, colour, ethnic origin, citizenship, creed, age, sex, record of offences, marital status, family status, handicap, and sexual orientation. EMMEDIA has and will continue to develop and implement diversity principles and strategies across all of its structures, policies, procedures, and decision making processes.
