Over the past year, ACOT convened an OT Advisory Panel, an OT Committee and consultant group, Hilkewich et al, to explore the current state and develop recommended next steps for ACOT’s Acting Against Racism and Intolerance (AARI) efforts.
We are pleased to provide you with the AARI Final Report which outlines next steps for this work. ACOT is committed to implementing the short- medium- and long-term recommended actions outlined in the report, over the coming months and years. This will be done in collaboration with racialized and equity seeking groups.
ACOT appreciates the efforts of the AARI Advisory Panel, AARI Committee, AARI survey participants and Hilkewich et al, in informing and creating this important report. We encourage you to read and reflect on the contents of the report; if you have question or comments about it, please contact Marianne Baird, CEO and Registrar at 780-436-8381 extension 105.
ACOT Council and staff will be engaging in ongoing dialogue and reflection as part of this work. We will also provide ongoing updates regarding our progress in future eNews editions and on the ACOT website.
