“So often we create only from what we know. Let’s go beyond that and envision a school system that reflects our dreams -. a welcoming, safe and truly inclusive environment where everyone feels like they belong.” – Tracy Humphreys, Executive Director, BCEdAccess

An entrepreneur in her business life, she has also been an active volunteer in BC schools for over 20 years and was awarded the 2019 Victoria Community Leadership Award in Lifelong Learning for her work as the founder and chair of the BCEdAccess Society, advocating for equitable access to education for children and youth with disabilities.
Workshop: Dreaming Big About Education
What could an ideal education system look like? Let’s brainstorm together and imagine some ways we can include everyone from the start.
This will be the first session in a series of conversations through the 2021/22 school year, talking together about how to make education better.
What are some components of an inclusive and welcoming education system? What is working well right now? What are other jurisdictions doing that we would like to see in BC? What is essential for a system to work for all students across all identies?
