Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion Action Plan

Cure Cancer Classic is a not-for-profit organization with a mission to drop the gloves against cancer, and fundraise for the Canadian Cancer Society. Situated at Queen’s University on traditional Anishinaabe (Ah- nish-in-ah-bay) and Haudenosaunee (Ho-den-o-show-nee) territory. We are grateful to be able to live, learn and play on these lands. As a member of the Queen's Commerce Society, we as an executive, recognize our failure to directly address discriminatory or oppressive practices both internally as an executive, and within the Smith community. This is unacceptable, and we vow to promote positive change for the diversity and inclusion of all members within our community, especially members of the QTBIPOC community and other marginalized students. However, we do not think this is enough. The hockey community has a long history of discriminatory and in-accessible practices. Members of these minority communities, specifically, indiginious peoples, do not have access geographically, or financially to play hockey. We want to change this. We want to support the movement to change hockey culture and make the sport we all love, accessible, inclusive, and diverse. We are listening, and we are learning, we will do better.
