In another step to combat systemic anti-Black racism, George Brown College President Anne Sado has signed the BlackNorth Initiative Pledge.

Signatories commit to achieving the seven goals outlined in the pledge, which are well aligned to the commitments made in George Brown College’s Anti-Racism Strategy. The BlackNorth Initiative is organized by the Canadian Council of Business Leaders Against Anti-Black Racism.

“We are committed to implementing the BlackNorth Initiative pledge at George Brown College as part of the crucial work we are undertaking to eliminate systemic racism faced by black employees and students in our community," said President Sado. “Our commitment to this pledge will play an important role in the actions we take to create meaningful change and become a truly equitable and inclusive institution.”

In addition to the BlackNorth Pledge, George Brown is delivering and developing a number of measures to tackle racism at the college, including our Anti-Racism Strategy and Anti-Black racism training, among others.
