A standing Equity Committee of the Association was established in 2009 with a mandate (1) to promote equal opportunity, diversity, and equity in all aspects of the profession in Canada and, in furtherance of these goals, (2) to track and report on the social, ethical and professional contexts of the discipline of classical studies in Canada, by supervising the collection of data concerning equity in the social, ethical and professional contexts of the discipline of classical studies in Canada (especially in connection with faculty, graduate studies, and research). The Equity Committee is composed of the Vice-President as Chair, a member of the Council, the President (or President’s delegate) of the Association’s Women’s Network, a graduate student member of the Association, and a member at large of the Association. At least one member of the committee will normally be francophone. The Equity Committee shall report the results of its data collection annually to Council, to the annual meeting of the Association, and via the Association’s electronic bulletin (CCB) following each annual meeting.
