LBPSB Task Force on Equity and Inclusivity

Earlier today the LBPSB issued the following press release:

 

Lester B. Pearson School Board names Dr. Myrna Lashley as Chair of the newly established “LBPSB Task Force on Equity and Inclusivity"

 

Dorval, QC, July 15, 2020 - At the special meeting of the Council of Commissioners on June 22, 2020, the Council passed a resolution, “Declaration of Anti-Racism and Anti-Discrimination”, that not only reaffirmed the School Board’s anti-racist position, it went further by establishing a Task Force to be comprised of administrators, commissioners, staff, students, parents, and representatives of minority and disenfranchised communities to oversee the development of a comprehensive action plan to address all forms of racism and discrimination in the LBPSB.

 

The Task Force was mandated to start work immediately, with a status report to the Council of Commissioners no later than September 1, 2020.

 

A significant first step was achieved this week with the naming of Dr. Myrna Lashley as the Chair of said Task Force (Bio provided below).

 

Noel Burke, Chair of the LBPSB states, “I am confident that Dr. Lashley’s extensive experience in race relations and her community recognition will ensure a successful reflection on our current practices and a sustainable strategy to eradicate discrimination throughout our board and schools.”

 

From Dr. Cindy Finn, Director General of the LBPSB, “Growth and change are inherent outcomes in education. Under Dr. Lashley’s leadership, this Task Force will afford an opportunity to address inequities in our system and explore how we can bring about positive and constructive change for our entire community.”

 

The next steps to be taken include the naming of the members of the Task Force, clarifying its mandate, and creating a meeting calendar.
