Following the Webinar with ROOTS series, ROOTS will host an all-school dialogue and will work with the ECU community in building affinity caucuses to provide listening spaces across different identity formations.

These sessions will focus on an intersectional approach and will involve receiving, understanding and remembering lived experiences of injustice and struggle across the university.

They take place in addition to the Webinar with ROOTS series, the Council Planning Sessions and the Drop-in Sessions.

How to participate:

This event is part of a series designed to enable Emily Carr University faculty and staff to participate in ECU's upcoming EDI Capacity Building grant.

Emily Carr University is a recipient of a two-year federal grant aimed at fostering greater equity, diversity and inclusion within the post-secondary research sector. This grant will help ECU identify, reveal and remedy systemic barriers that may impede the recruitment, advancement and research of underrepresented and minoritized faculty, specifically from an Academic Affairs and Research perspective.
