STATUS AND EQUITY
Equity work requires planning, commitment and continual reflection. It is multifaceted and, to be effective, involves “walking the talk”, changing the self as well as the world.
It is controversial. Equity work is about fundamental change, which is often vigorously resisted. Those who benefit from the way society is currently organized, or who are unaware of the pervasiveness of discrimination, or who are simply comfortable with the status quo, are often reluctant to contemplate new ways of doing things.
ETFO embraces the need for change and is committed to moving forward on equity and social justice. Members and staff will be supported by ETFO in the learning that is necessary to effect change.
