Last October, more than 3000 members of Canada’s higher education community came together for the National Dialogues and Action for Inclusive Higher Education and Communities. Emerging from this forum was a commitment to a unified approach to fighting structural racism.
Since then, a collective plan of action has been drafted in a document called the Scarborough National Charter on Anti-Black Racism and Black Inclusion in Canadian Higher Education: Principles, Actions, and Accountabilities.
The drafting of this charter has been a collaborative national effort, led by the National Dialogues and Action Inter-Institutional Advisory Committee.
As a committed partner in this initiative, Emily Carr University is inviting your feedback on the draft charter. A summary of our community’s comments will be sent to the Inter-Institutional Advisory Committee to help shape the next iteration of the charter.
In the interest of transparency, community feedback will be shared online at ecuad.ca/edi. (You can also submit your comments privately or anonymously.)
Please don’t hesitate to contact me at email@example.com if you have any questions about ECU’s participation in this important initiative.
