Why is this Plan Necessary?

This plan is required in order to address the Association’s past inadequacies and failures when dealing with the concerns of our members who hail from equity deserving groups or, more accurately, historically-excluded groups. The Plan’s starting point is that the Mount Royal Faculty Association has not always been the inclusive, equitable and welcoming organization that we have imagined it to be. As an Association, we need to do better to make sure we hear the legitimate concerns our colleagues have expressed about being unheard, marginalized and treated unfairly. This Plan offers a road map to acknowledging (facing) that the Association has deep connections to white, hetero-normative, patriarchal, ableist, male, colonial privilege (yes, that word) and reorienting the Association to more fully serving all of its members.
