In 2014-15, 760 faculty members participated in AODA training for Educators and 446 staff members participated in Pathways to Human Rights, Education & Action workshops. Many other staff and faculty participated in other opportunities such as Humber's Diversity & Inclusion Dialogues, AODA Customer Service and Integrated Accessibility Standards Regulation/Ontario Human Rights Code.

Humber's HR professional development department runs 2-day Mental Health First Aid workshops. These workshops help to equip all employees with basic tools to effectively intervene and support students, co-workers, and members of the public who are experiencing mental health problems. 124 employees took this training between April 2015-May 2016.

At least one sustainability knowledge workshop is run annually during Humber's annual internal staff and faculty conference 'Showcase'. Workshops are focused on connecting staff and faculty with the natural environment, how sustainability connects to varied topics, what they can do, etc.


A brief description of any external professional development and training opportunities in sustainability that are supported by the institution(e.g. through payment, reimbursement, or subsidy):

Individual staff can ask their manager for support through time or funding to do external training and professional development in sustainability (case by case basis).

All Humber staff can further their education through the "Tuition Assistance Program" (TAP). A maximum of $1000 per employee is available per fiscal year for tuition costs. This could be used for any certificate, diploma or degree.
