Despite public commitments to improve equity in post-secondary education, universities and colleges continue to be places that exclude Aboriginal Peoples; persons with disabilities; persons who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, and two-spirited; racialized minorities; and women.

CAUT’s 4th Equity Conference will bring together equity and academic staff association activists from across the country to discuss and develop ways to more effectively promote equity on our campuses by mobilizing members, negotiating and enforcing stronger collective agreement language, and building solidarity.
