DSBN Equity, Inclusion and Anti-Racism
Community Advisory Committee
DSBN is committed to identifying and eliminating all forms of discrimination and
systemic barriers. A part of our vision is to create a culture of transformative
and impactful change through an inclusive design that uses an asset-based lens of
our students and is anchored in anti-oppression, anti-racism and human rights. In
support of this commitment to creating an inclusive environment in our schools,
the DSBN has established the Equity, Inclusion and Anti-Racism Community Advisory
Committee (EIARCAC) to draw in the participation of families and our communities.
The DSBN Equity, Inclusion and Anti-Racism Community Advisory Committee meets following
a quarterly schedule determined by the Committee. As a Committee Member, you will
be providing advice and feedback using anti-oppressive, anti-racist and human rights
lenses to ensure that decisions, policies and practices do not create barriers

by societal structures.
The committee is inviting applications from:
- community representative from human rights and equity-focused organizations, alliances
and/or networks that serves Black, Indigenous, Racialized communities, Two-spirit
and LGBTQI2S+ communities, ethno-cultural communities, and people with disabilities
