“The Office of the Vice-President, Research (OVPR) is pleased to announce that Emmanuel Songsore has joined the OVPR as Manager, Research Equity, Diversity and Inclusive Excellence (EDIE).”

The second quote mentions commercialization, a topic of controversy within the academy to which I’ll return in upcoming posts. The business case for EDI is a strong driver of its implementation in research funding, but some worry its a vehicle for ideological orthodoxy.
