Convention resolutions

At the 2018 convention, HEU members voted to establish a two-phase diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) project.

Phase 1:

  • The DEI working group will consult broadly with members on the question of representation of equity-seeking groups on the P.E.
  • The working group will make recommendations for constitutional and policy changes to the 2020 HEU convention.

Phase 2:

  • Continue the work of transforming our union into a fully inclusive organization; consider a broad governance review beyond the P.E.; identify and initiate plans to dismantle barriers to equity and inclusion at the local level; deliver training for all levels of the organization on applying a DEI lens.
  • The mandate and terms of reference for Phase 2 will be adopted at the 2020 convention.
