USJE is committed to advancing equity, diversity and inclusion within the Union and in each of the 18 departments and agencies where USJE’s members work. We know there is a lot of work to be done, and that USJE’s journey to becoming a leader in this field has just begun. We recognize the need to evolve as an organization, and to learn from others who have lived experience, expertise and guidance to offer.
In January 2023, USJE held its first ever National Equity conference in Winnipeg, Manitoba. At USJE’s Triennial National Convention in Whistler, BC in July 2023, USJE’s members voted overwhelmingly to convene a National Equity conference every three years for the foreseeable future.
USJE is currently seeking applications for its National Equity Committee chaired by Regional Vice Presidents Shauna Ward, and Vice Chair Kirk McIntosh. Please complete the application form below by November 26 in order to be considered.
Applications are now closed.
There are limited spots available and members will be selected based on the strength of their application. USJE also strives to have representation from all regions, members who speak English or French (among other languages), and who are from a range of equity groups.
We thank everyone in advance for their submissions of Interest. All applicants will be advised of the outcome by the end of the year.
Please stay tuned for more information about USJE’s National Equity conference to be held in 2025.
