Human Rights & Equity: Who’s in? Who’s out?
Date: May 20-22, 2015
Location: Eaton Chelsea Hotel, Toronto, Ontario
The 2015 CAPDHHE Conference will examine the shifting landscapes of human rights work in the postsecondary sector. The questions of who’s included and who’s left out of equity and diversity priorities will be explored by human rights practitioners in Canada and beyond. The 2015 Conference will examine the effects of inequality for all people, highlighting the intersections and the impacts on racialized and Aboriginal peoples studying and working in higher education.
Each session will be 75 minutes in duration. The Planning Committee reserves the right to limit the number of participants in each session.
Sessions will create space to discuss the opportunities and complexities of human rights work at a time when issues of competing rights, subtle forms of discrimination and community-based activism can create politically charged environments to navigate. Participants will be invited to share practical tools to support our diverse student and employee bodies and develop new strategies rooted in equity.
Hosted in Toronto, Ontario, CAPDHHE 2015 will welcome presenters and delegates from different regions, languages and social locations to give voice to the changing climate of equity work throughout the country.
This year’s conference will be centred on three unique streams:
1. Institutional Change, addressing best practices and new strategies for advocacy within the postsecondary sector;
2. Activism and Communities, exploring emerging social justice movements and key strategies to support diverse communities; and
3. Critical Conversations, where delegates will come together to ask pertinent questions and engage in discussions critical to building more equitable learning, working and living campus environments.
We invite you to submit a proposal to present at the conference by January 8, 2015. If you have any question or require further clarification as you develop your proposal, please contact: Nancy Simms at firstname.lastname@example.org or Scott Clarke at email@example.com. The Committee will respond to all proposals no later than January 23, 2015.
