Course Currency, Inclusivity, and Indigenous Content
Canada is a country rich in a variety of cultures, nationalities, and ways of thinking – it’s imperative that educational resources strengthen this aspect rather than silence it. Always striving to minimize bias in our content, Pearson is dedicated to creating resources that reflect the diversity, depth, and breadth of all learners’ lived experiences. What this means in practical terms is we have hired subject matter experts with the skills and knowledge to critically review ALL of our content, with a lens on identifying opportunities to make them more inclusive and ensure they are providing real examples of diverse experiences and perspectives.
Pearson Canada has adopted the “Nothing About Us Without Us” principle by working with Indigenous reviewers, content contributors, editors, and authors to ensure the accurate and respectful representation of Indigenous Peoples, histories, cultures, and perspectives. Pearson is also working with Indigenous academics, professionals, and members of Inuit, Métis, and First Nation communities, to increase Indigenous content across all publishing products.
