The Diversity, Equity and Human Rights (DEHR) committee promotes diversity, equity and human rights in Alberta schools. The provincial committee undertakes such activities as sponsoring the annual Diversity, Equity and Human Rights grant program; publishing Just in Time, an e newsletter; working with subcommittees for Aboriginal education, intercultural education, sexual orientation and gender identity, and gender equity; and maintaining formal ties with the UNESCO Associated Schools project network (ASPnet).
The DEHR committee also produces many resources related to diversity, equity and human rights and has recently published a handbook (Establishing DEHR Committees in Local Associations) for local associations to set up their own DEHR committees.
