Creating a Culture of Inclusion at Bow Valley College is an initiative that aims to create a campus culture of respect by viewing individual human rights through lenses of inclusion and collaboration. The resource was guided by input from Bow Valley College employees through a series of world cafés and focus groups.
The resource helps inform employees at Bow Valley College about their human rights. The spirit of the resource is the same as the spirit of human rights legislation in Canada. It is remedial – one that helps all employees understand human rights with respect to themselves as well as people they deal with in the workplace. The premise is that when employees understand their own and others’ rights and responsibilities, they can be instrumental in eliminating discrimination and in building a truly inclusive workplace environment for everyone in the organization.
The human rights listed in this resource are from the thirty that make up the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which forms the basis of human rights legislation in Canada. Below is a quick overview of the various levels of human rights legislation in Canada:
