Terms of Reference
The Vancouver Secondary Teachers’ Association Ad Hoc Teacher of Colour Committee is created to provide an opportunity for teachers of colour to discuss their life experiences, ideas, and concerns as educators, and to work towards concrete actions designed to raise awareness, and to bring cultural, linguistic, and racial diversity assets to make the VSTA stronger through diversity and inclusion.
Objectives may include:

  • Reviewing member survey on Equity
  • Reviewing existing VSTA policies and structures concerning teachers from the perspective of members of colour, and propose changes to ensure the needs of educators of colour are met
