CEC Diversity and Inclusion Committee
Over the past weeks, Climbing Escalade Canada (CEC) has been struggling to find the words to support the Black Life Matters movement. More than words, we are searching for actions that we can take as an organization to support our members of racialized groups, and to attract and enhance diversity within our community.
In response to our desire to do more, we launch today a Diversity and Inclusion Committee to support our organization’s efforts to address diversity and inclusion within the Canadian climbing community.
What is Diversity and Inclusion?
Diversity and Inclusion is about recognizing, respecting and valuing differences based on ethnicity, gender identity, color, age, race, religion, disability, national origin and sexual orientation. It also addresses an infinite range of unique individual characteristics and experiences, such as communication style, career path, life experience, educational background, geographic location, income level, marital status, military experience, parental status and other variables that influence personal perspectives.
CEC calls out to the community – applications are now open. Send your completed application for to firstname.lastname@example.org by June 30th, 2020.
