On behalf of the Executive, and Terra Garneau, our Equity Officer, this is a call out to members for expressions of interest to serve as committee members on the Equity and Diversity Committee. The Equity Officer is also the Chair of this committee.
The Equity and Diversity committee identifies and makes recommendations to AASUA Executive for advocacy on issues of equality, diversity, oppression, harassment, and injustice impacting members and their work; and monitors and reports to AASUA Executive through the Equity Officer on any Association policies, decisions, or activities that may be perpetuating unequal treatment of our members.
We want to welcome individuals from equity seeking groups to participate on this committee. This includes, but is not limited to, women, Indigenous Peoples, persons with disabilities, members of visible minority/racialized groups, and members of LGBTQ2+ communities.
If you are interested in serving, please forward a short note with a description of your background and why you are interested in participating on this committee to my attention.
Executive shall review and consider all expressions of interest received when determining appointments for this committee.
