Transforming our Educational Systems: Responding to the TRC and Federation’s “Igniting Change” EDID Recommendations in Education

With support from the Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences Aid for Interdisciplinary Sessions Fund.
Collaborating Associations: CSSE, CSA.

The CSSHE and the Federation of the Humanities and Social Sciences are committed to Reconciliation and EDID and have established records of working collaboratively with members of the broader educational community to anchor these principles into the life and work of our associations, institutions, and professional practices. Each member of this panel is a top researcher, practitioner, and institutional leader who has helped deepen recognition of the importance of EDID and the need for social justice throughout our institutional structures and educational systems. They will be asked to discuss ways we might increase BIPOC and LGBTQI representation in education; explore ways we can address systemic privilege in our institutions; and consciously work to disrupt the status quo and clear pathways to transformative action, equity and justice on our campuses.
