Equity Committee

The goal of the CBUFA Equity Committee is to achieve a working environment which strives for inclusiveness as well as social and economic fairness through recognition, respect, accountability, responsibility and representation for marginalized groups who may be excluded from full participation in the academy. These groups include but are not limited to Indigenous peoples; women; visible/racialized minorities; persons with disabilities; and those marginalized due to sexual orientation or gender identity. The CBUFA Equity Committee will seek to achieve this goal by monitoring equity issues, proposing policy changes, and undertaking appropriate initiatives on behalf of the CBUFA membership.
