VP of Equity and Inclusion Candidate

 Meaghan Emery, Geology:

I’ve been organizing the Equity and Inclusion committee for a few months, editing bylaw language to create a more inclusive document that represents everyone in our union, as well as discussing new ways to run meetings that address the concerns and ideas of our membership without impeding union progress. As Vice President of Equity and Inclusion, my primary focus will be to address issues around the way our meetings operate, either through adaption of policies regarding Robert’s Rules that make certain everyone feels comfortable with their usage, or by creating a form of Consensus that works with our meeting size.
