KINGSTON, ON – The Alma Mater Society (AMS) has released a report on our equity, diversity, inclusivity, and Indigeneity commitments.

It is imperative and essential that the Alma Mater Society (AMS) always apply a lens that considers intersectionality and the distinct interests and concerns of the QTBIPOC students we serve. As the student government representing approximately 20,000 undergraduate students at Queen’s, we have a position of leadership that we must use to foster a positive social impact. In every conversation, initiative, and service we run, we work to represent the diversity of undergraduate students at Queen’s. This requires consideration, reflection, and constant learning so we can best utilize our roles and platforms to advance equity. 

It was incredibly important that our equity priorities were informed by the voices of students, and we thank everyone who engaged with us during this process. This report is a compilation of the suggestions, input, and feedback given to us by our members.  

In the future, this report will be released annually to take stock of the equity work done in the AMS and to ensure that there is constant advancement in the areas of equity, diversity, inclusion, and Indigeneity.
