The Charter drafting exercise was truly a collaborative effort on a national scale, with input from various members of the higher education sector and other partners. Drawing from that input, the Inter-Institutional Advisory Committee (IIAC) for the National Dialogues and Action worked diligently to capture the valuable perspectives, rich insights, and forward-looking actions necessary to address anti-Black racism and Black inclusion from the deliberations on October 1 and 2, 2020, and other subsequent feedback, in the first iteration of the Charter.

The co-creation of the Charter includes institutional partners. Feedback from the consortium of partners who have committed to the vision and goals of this collaborative effort across the Canadian higher education sector is critically important in shaping the next iteration of the Charter. Recognizing the diverse contexts in which partner institutions operate, each institution will determine the most appropriate consultation process for generating feedback from their community, considering the spirit of inclusive decision-making.
