Why we are asking you to self identify
Universities like SFU originate from eurocentrism, colonialism and bureaucracies that reinforce systems of power and privilege and leave many on the margins.The Sustainability Office is committed to disrupting colonial narratives and addressing reconciliation, equity, diversity, and inclusion in its work.
To capture diverse community perspectives, individuals of all identities and communities are welcome to become members. In particular, participation of people from communities marginalized by environmental interventions and/or disproportionately impacted by climate change, including but not limited to Indigenous and Black communities, people living with disabilities and neurodiversity, female identified persons, and people who identify as LGBTQ2SAI+.
