Marissa Carrasco on Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

"I feel fortunate to be part of this important work at Selkirk College," says the advisory committee member.

"To me, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion involves an ongoing process of reflection - as individuals to recognize that we all have existing biases and as an institution to identify systemic barriers. This reflection is vital in advancing our values and commitments.

At Selkirk College and as individuals, we won't always get it right on the first try. This is a journey, not a box to check and we will always strive for better. My hope for today is that we will move forward in a good way and that one day this work will be embedded in our day-to-day culture for students, employees and our greater Selkirk community."
