The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Intersex (2SLGBTQIA+) Committee works to enhance awareness of 2SLGBTQIA+ issues in the Local, the teaching profession, and society. The goals of the committee include:

Providing education to members about the histories and experiences of 2SLGBTQIA+ people in our workplaces and society.
Advising and making recommendations to the ETT Executive of strategies which raise awareness and sensitize ETT members about 2SLGBTQIA+ issues.
Co-operating with other communities, unions, individuals, and community groups to advance awareness of 2SLGBTQIA+ issues in our Local.
The 2SLGBTQIA+ Committee meets approximately once a month in the ETT office.
