The B.C. Government is committed to tackling systemic racism in public sector policies, programs, and services. Data is needed to better understand how Government policies, programs and services have an impact on Indigenous, Black/People of African descent and other racialized communities. Members of Black/People of African descent, Indigenous and racialized communities have advocated for race-based data collection in support of this goal. Government will introduce legislation next year on race-based data collection.
Skeena Diversity is pleased to engage with our diverse communities to discuss race-based data collection.
We are hosting two discussion sessions: Thursday January 27 and Monday, January 31 at 12 pm noon via Zoom
Every volunteer participant will receive a gift card as a recognition of your time and your contribution
The process will cover four main sections:
• Section 1: How you are represented in the data
• Section 2: Collection of race-based data
• Section 3: Access and use of race-based data
• Section 4: Impacts of using race-based data
