Colleagues,

I hope that this finds you all safe and well.

As you know, UBC established the Anti-Racism and Inclusive Excellence (ARIE) Task Force in early 2021 to address systemic racism within our community.  Last Friday, an event was held to mark the launch of its final report, which includes 54 recommendations.

If you were unable to make the event, I would encourage you to watch it:  https://antiracism.ubc.ca/2022/04/22/arie-tf-report-launch/.

Please also take a look at the at final ARIE Task Force reports:  https://antiracism.ubc.ca/task-force-report/

Thank you to all those who were involved in this very important process.

All the best,
Dr. Robert Kozak
