A LSUC report on racialized licensees recommends measures like the LSUC doing an internal diversity assessment, and providing equality and inclusion education to Convocation. Do you plan to read the report, and support its recommendations?
Yes, this report is a critical piece of insight on how to address the widespread barriers that racialized licensees face. These recommendations, if implemented, can lead to important social change.
No, I do not have plans to read this report. This issue is very complex and needs more than the LSUC recommendations implemented to lead to meaningful social change.
