The Faculty of Arts and Humanities at Western University is committed to creating equitable and inclusive learning environments that value diverse perspectives and experiences, both inside and outside the classroom. We recognize that students can be marginalized based on social identity characteristics such as, but not limited to, Indigeneity, race, ethnicity, nationality, ability, gender identity, gender expression, sexuality, age, language, religion, and socioeconomic status. Understanding this, we strive to facilitate equitable experiences and inclusion during all internship opportunities by respecting and integrating multiple ways of knowing, being, and doing.
