Pathway Podcast: Building Inclusive Communities at Carleton

Carleton University is committed to supporting equity, diversity and inclusion within all aspects of the university. With four years of studying at Carleton and now working in the Department of Equity and Inclusive Communities (EIC), Jaime Sadgrove joins the Carleton Pathway Podcast to talk about the transition to university and the importance of inclusion and safe spaces on campus. In the latest episode of the Pathways Podcast, Jaime discusses their role at EIC, the numerous resources available to the Trans community at Carleton and the next steps on the journey to equity and inclusion!

Show Notes:

1:51 = Right off the bat, Jaime mentions the Department of Equity and Inclusive Communities, where they work on campus. The EIC works to develop an inclusive and transformational university culture, honouring individual distinctiveness and a sense of belonging for every member of the Carleton community.

2:53 = Jaime got their start in their position at EIC through the Carleton Trans Advocacy Group (CTAG). CTAG is a volunteer grassroots collective on campus that is focused on trans advocacy and harm-reduction work at Carleton. CTAG is crucial in promoting the inclusion of all students, faculty, staff, and members of the Carleton community.

3:45 = Prior to working at EIC, Jaime worked in residence! Working in residence is a great way to help foster the growth in other students as well as yourself. Interested in working in residence? Visit Carleton’s housing website to take a look at job opportunities!

6:47 = Jaime was able to find their job on campus through Carleton’s useful hiring portal. Through mySuccess, students are able to access a wide variety of job postings, for employment both on and off campus. mySuccess is accessible through Carleton Central.

14:42 = Jaime mentions the Carleton University Safer Space Program (CUSSP). CUSSP is an important university-wide initiative to reduce the impact of homophobia and transphobia on campus and to increase the visibility of supportive people and positive spaces for the LGBTQ community on campus, offered by the Department of Equity and Inclusive Communities.

20:01 = Jaime talks about how significant Carleton clubs were to them during their first years transitioning to university, especially with finding their passions. To see a full list of all the clubs and societies offered at Carleton, visit the Carleton University Students’ Association (CUSA)’s website.

22:40 = One of the clubs at Carleton that Jaime mentions is the Carleton Science Student Society (CSSS). Are you in the Faculty of Science? Check out CSSS to see what events and resources interest you!

23:45 = With their desire to help other students transition smoothly to first year, Jaime became a Summer Orientation Leader! Interested in learning more about the program? Visit the Student Experience Office (SEO)’s website to learn more about the Summer Orientation program and how to get involved.

26:03 = One of the most important resources Jaime used during their time as a Carleton student was the Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS)! PASS helps students by reviewing specific course content as well as transferable study skills. Check out the PASS website for information on study sessions, how to become a facilitator, and more!
