How to Create an Inclusive Card Office

We’ll review all of the considerations that the Georgian College ONEcard Office has undergone in striving to create a welcoming and inclusive environment and promote inclusivity at Georgian. This will include: use of preferred names, wheelchair accessibility, student representation, service animal IDs, AODA compliance, and mindful language.

  • What considerations, policies, changes have you implemented at your institution to make your office more accessible to students?
  • What challenges have you faced when implementing changes for inclusivity?
  • Who on your campus can you reach out to for assistance with assessing/improving inclusivity?
