The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Intersex (LGBTQI) Committee works to enhance awareness of LGBTQI issues in the Local, the teaching profession, and society. The goals of the committee include:
- Providing strategies to ensure that all ETT activities are inclusive, and support LGBTQI members to become active in our local and at the provincial level.
- Providing education to members about the histories and experiences of LGBTQI people in our workplaces and society.
- Advising and making recommendations to the ETT Executive of strategies which raise awareness and sensitize ETT members about LGBTQI issues.
- Co-operating with other communities, unions, individuals, and community groups to advance awareness of LGBTQI issues in our Local.
The LGBTQI Committee meets approximately once a month in the ETT office.
