Welcome to the Human Rights and Equity (HRE) Book Club!
Here, members and staff will participate in discussing a variety of books in a virtual forum. The HRE team will be looking for recommended reads by Canadian authors who have had an impact on equity groups – racialized members, members with disabilities, Indigenous members, Francophone members, and LGBTQI2S members. They also hope they can get an author or two to join the review!
