The King’s/Brescia Joint Principals’ Anti-Racism Working Group has been established to better understand our campus climate—particularly from the perspective of ethno- cultural, indigenous people and racialized groups—and to make recommendations that aim to make the King’s and Brescia campuses safer, more respectful and more equitable environments in which to study, research, work and live.
While some of the work of the group can be developed jointly, some activities may be focused on specific campus culture and policy. The group will make use of special interest groups to focus on the gathering of information and formulation of draft recommendations, to be discussed, reviewed and incorporated within the final recommendations presented to senior administration and the King’s/Brescia community.
Specifically, the group will focus its attention on five themes:
|Lissette Ochoa, Co-Lead||Vidya Natarajan, Co-Lead|
|Melissa Yak, Student||Deborah Kamba, Student|
|Paula Bravo, BUCSC Representative||Zainab Al-Jaiashi & Roshaydia Morgan, KUCSC Representatives|
|Yvonne Asare-Bediako, Faculty||JK Kato, Faculty|
|Tim D’Souza, Equity Committee||Esra Ari, Equity Committee|
|Matthew Nguyen, Staff||Amna Wasty and Nikki Sasso Mitchell, Staff|
|Maria Daniella Quinones, Alumna||Sihan Elkassen, Alumna|
