Committee on Human Rights in the Workplace - Report to the Board of Directors
The Committee will be holding its next meeting on February 23, 2008.
Key items to be discussed:
a) Employment Equity Plans
b) Revised Mandate
c) Presentation to the Senate Standing Committee on Human Rights
d) Committee Members’ Presentations
Three Employment Equity training courses will be held in the upcoming months: one course in French in March, and two English courses (due to high demand) will be held in April and May. A representative from the Committee will be in attendance at each training session to act as a resource person and to provide information about the role and mandate of the CHRW to participants.
The Committee is once again planning to hold one of its meetings to coincide with the annual conference of the Canadian Association of Statutory Human Rights Agencies, and Committee members will be attending and participating in the conference. This year, the theme will be "Commissions to Communities and Back". As of yet, no details have been released regarding the conference program. The Committee will be following up with the organizers of the conference to propose that a PIPSC representative be included on one of the panels.
