As a part of a project supported by the CSBA membership to take action against racism in the education sector, the University of Regina team has developed the first set of resources to support School Board elections to seek greater cultural diversity in candidates.
These resources are available for public distribution and to encourage more culturally diverse candidates to consider running for school board. To best support all students, we need to invite diverse and traditionally racialized candidates so that boards reflect all voices at the governance level, in addition to looking at governance practices to truly welcome candidates to actively participate.
With a focus on districts with elections in 2022, and nominations opening imminently, you are invited to share these materials with education partners and those interested in public education governance. Associations are also able to add their logos to the materials. The graphics are perfect for social media posts, or adding to email signatures.
