Chers/chères membres de l’ACL et collègues,

Nous souhaitons mettre sur pied un comité spécial sur l’inclusion, la diversité et l’équité dans le milieu de la linguistique canadienne. Afin de structurer ce comité et d’en déterminer le mandat exact, nous aimerions connaître vos préoccupations et besoins concernant tout sujet relié à ces notions. Nous vous invitons donc à joindre la discussion en participant à la communauté MeWe « ACL-CLA.inclusion » à laquelle vous pouvez accéder en suivant ce lien https://mewe.com/join/cla-acl-inclusion. Notez que nous sommes également à la recherche de volontaires intéressés à contribuer aux activités du comité de façon régulière. Et enfin, nous vous invitons à nous joindre à discuter des questions pertinentes à la table ronde qui aura lieu le 2 juin au Congrès.

À titre informatif, nous croyons que le comité pourrait avoir une mission tripartite : (i) éduquer à travers la dissémination d’information et l’organisation d’ateliers, (ii) engendrer et encourager la réflexion et la discussion au moyen de forums sur le web ou en personne, (iii) créer des espaces sûrs (ponctuels ou permanents) où les membres de l’ACL s’estimant victimes d’exclusion, de discrimination ou de harcèlement puissent trouver du soutien.

Nous espérons que vous serez plusieurs à répondre à l’appel.

N’hésitez pas à communiquer avec nous directement pour toute question, requête ou pour tout commentaire.

Bien cordialement,

Anne Bertrand

Dear CLA Members and Colleagues,

We propose to launch an ad hoc committee on “Inclusion, diversity, and equity in the Canadian linguistic milieu”. In order to determine the structure and mandate of the committee, we would like to hear about your needs and concerns regarding any of the topics listed in the committee title. To this end, we invite you to participate in the MeWe community “ACL-CLA.inclusion”, which you can join via the following link https://mewe.com/join/cla-acl-inclusion. Please note as well that we are looking for volunteers interested in contributing regularly to the activities of the proposed committee. And finally, save the date: we invite you to join us in discussing the issues at the CLA Roundtable on June 2, at Congress.

To begin, we think that the committee could have a three-part mission: (i) educating through information sharing and workshops; (ii) creating and encouraging reflection and dialogue through web forums or in person; (iii) creating (short- or long-term) safe spaces to support CLA members who consider themselves to be victims of exclusion, discrimination, or harassment.

We hope to hear from many of you. Please feel free to approach us directly with any of your questions, requests, or comments.

Sincerely,

Anne Bertrand
