Diversity Committee

The iREx Diversity Committee was created to pursue the following objectives:

Vision : iREx will be an inclusive, respectful and diversified environment, where everyone has an equal opportunity to progress professionally.

Mission : To foster the professional integration, within iREx, of people from groups that are traditionally under-represented in the field of physics research, in order to increase the scientific prosperity of an institute that is inclusive and proud of its diversity.


  • Increase the recruitment of people from under-represented groups at all levels of education and employment;
  • Promote the integration and retention of these people within iREx;
  • Promote diversity in science through iREx;
  • Encourage the pursuit of a career in research after studying or working at iREx.

At the present time, the committee includes Olivier Hernandez, David Lafrenière, Frédérique Baron et Marie-Eve Naud.
