Dr. June Francis
Chair of the Anti-Racism Data Committee
“This ground-breaking Anti-Racism Data Act seeks to ensure that B.C. is a province where all people regardless of race can flourish. The Anti-Racism Data Committee will be critical to realizing these aspirations. The committee is constituted to ensure the representation of Indigenous and racialized communities and will work hard to ensure the promises made to address systemic racism and gaps in service in the public sector are realized. This will involve a continuous process of working with communities, including their perspectives, and maintaining cultural safety as we collaborate with government to establish key research priorities. The primary focus will be to gather and monitor data to close the racial equity gaps that exist in public service.”
