Equity Advisors in the Department of Political Science

In the context of ongoing efforts to promote strong and sustainable departmental responses to the issues of harassment and sexual misconduct, the Department of Political Science has appointed two professors to the position of equity advisor. The aim of this position is to work in cooperation with the chair and other members of the department to promote strengthened norms and practices in the department regarding preventing and addressing harassment and sexual misconduct.

The equity advisors are available, individually or in tandem, to meet with colleagues and students to discuss questions relating to harassment, sexual misconduct, and related equity concerns, and will refer students and colleagues to the relevant specialized services and offices at McGill. They will promote awareness and application of policies and guidelines related to these issues in the department, including the forthcoming Department of Political Science Guidelines on Relationships between Instructors and Students. The role will evolve according to Departmental needs.

Our current equity officers are Professor Kelly Gordon (kelly.gordon2@mcgill.ca) and Professor Hudson Meadwell (hudson.meadwell@mcgill.ca). Please feel free to reach out to either Professor Gordon or Professor Meadwell with any concerns in relation to this issue.
