Task Force on Intersectional Gender-based Violence and Aboriginal Stereotypes reports
In the Fall of 2013 President Toope convened a Task Force on Intersectional Gender-based Violence and Aboriginal Stereotypes in response to chants promoting rape culture and Aboriginal stereotypes that occurred during student-led Commerce Undergraduate Society FROSH activities.
The Task Force produced 14 recommendations that focus on the climate for faculty, staff and students on UBC campuses. The President and the Executive response and action plan: Renewing our commitment to equity and diversity: UBC’s response to the Task Force Recommendations. This action plan is not only in response to the student-led chants, but builds upon UBC’s current strengths, understandings and competencies relating to equity, diversity and inclusion in the areas of policy, strategic leadership and planning, curriculum and education, and supporting a respectful community.
