Indigenous Leadership Circle Sherry Ridsdale

HRE caucuses and networks help BCNU members connect socially, share with each other about challenges they face and take action to advocate for change. The groups’ collaborative work takes an intersectional approach highlighting the importance of recognizing how union members’ identities have multiple dimensions that must be considered to create safe, welcoming, equitable and inclusive workplaces for all.
