Upon meeting with our Board of Directors yesterday afternoon, we share the resignation of our Vice-President, Equity and Inclusion, Ash Grover, due to an employment opportunity with Brock’s Learning Services. We deeply respect this decision by Ash and though are saddened by the departure from our Executive Committee, the GSA fully supports this next step in Ash’s professional endeavours.
“I have loved my time with the Graduate Students’ Association and I am grateful to have served on the Executive team for over a year,” shares Grover. “It was an honour to work with this brilliant group of individuals, and I look forward to continued opportunities to support the graduate student experience through my new role with Learning Services.”
“Ash joined the GSA first as a Board Director in October 2020 and then the Executive Committee as Vice-President, Equity and Inclusion in May 2021. As an organization, we have been incredibly fortunate to have had her compassionate leadership, expansive knowledge, and steadfast commitment to supporting all graduate students,” shares President Haley Myatt. “As the inaugural office holder for the Vice-President, Equity and Inclusion position, Ash made monumental progress in this portfolio and created an approachable foundation for future office holders. We are deeply appreciative of all the work that Ash has done for the Association over the past few academic years and wish her the best.”
As we embark on another summer recruitment cycle, we want to thank our members in advance for their patience and understanding for any disruptions to service or delays in communications during this time. Today, Friday, July 29, we will begin the recruitment process to fill the vacancy of Vice-President, Equity and Inclusion and to complete our Executive compliment once again.
In discussions outside of the Board of Directors’ meeting yesterday, the Executive Committee has collectively agreed to subsequently support the transitional period wherever possible.
If you have questions regarding the recruitment process or the role of Vice-President, Equity and Inclusion, please reach out to Haley Myatt at email@example.com.
