UManitoba anti-racism task force releases interim report, recommendations


The University of Manitoba’s anti-racism task force has released a report containing its initial findings and recommendations for streamlining its incident response. According to the university, the seven recommendations are foundational in nature and include developing measurable targets, establishing an overarching anti-racism policy, and providing education to decision-makers at all levels on how to use an anti-racism lens and address diversity gaps. “The task force is really mindful that many task force reports get done, and nothing really happens,” said UManitoba Executive Lead of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Tina Chen. “What I hope is quite different in this moment is that the reports that we’re seeing about anti-racism (now) are a result of broad-based community activism that is insisting the work be done.”
