Museum charts its path forward (Canadian Museum for Human Rights)

Isha Khan, President and CEO of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights (CMHR), today released a framework plan to create a safe, respectful and healthy workplace. The document has been posted on the CMHR website.

“Creating lasting change requires a deep commitment to challenging our systems and the way we work,” said Khan, who began her role as CMHR leader on August 17. “We are approaching this thoughtfully and have been working hard to gather input from employees and the community. Our approach must address systemic racism and discrimination in our workplace in a meaningful way. It cannot be window dressing. It will take a sustained effort over time.”

The newly released document responds to recommendations contained in the Phase One report of an independent external review into complaints by former and current staff about systemic issues in the Museum’s workplace. Phase Two is now underway.
