AOMBT Accountability Statement: Our Commitment to Justice & Equity

Eradicating systemic racism and achieving justice for all requires support and engagement from a broad range of people, groups, and communities.

We acknowledge that systemic injustices and inequities stemming from colonization and ongoing discrimination have positioned certain peoples and communities at greater risk of physical, social, and economic harm and disadvantage. This includes First Nations, Métis, and Inuit peoples, Black people, racialized people, people with disabilities, and other equity-deserving groups.

Building on our organization's Values and our Anti-Racism and Equity work thus far, we are committed to building ongoing equity practices, and we are guided by these key principles:

  • Centering equity-deserving groups
  • Cultivating member relationships
  • Consistently and continuously engaging in learning and unlearning
  • Championing and modeling inclusive leadership and decision making

To achieve our goals, we will:

  • Enhance our commitment to reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples and support their wellbeing.
  • Work to build greater equity in our shared communities in terms of gender, race, sexual orientation, ability, socio-economic status, and age.
  • Engage in ongoing reflection on past practices, contribute to dismantling systemic barriers, as well as create equitable access and opportunities.
  • Create a work culture of understanding, dignity, and respect.
  • Embed equity in our policies, processes, and interactions.
  • Operate in a honest and transparent manner, and encourage dialogue and accountability in communications, actions, and decisions.
