RE: Exam Week Cis-sexism @Carleton_U

Dear Carleton Equity Services,

I’m writing in regards to the proctor training session that took place on November 16th in 180 University Centre led by John Tracey, Examinations Coordinator. During this session, I asked what the policy was if a student writing an exam requested to use a gender-neutral washroom. The answer I received was “it hasn’t come up”. I probed with a follow-up citing the Carleton Human Right’s Code’s protections for gender identity and was told the relevant policy would be emailed out. This follow-up action did not occur.

It is my hope that the policy surrounding requests for gender neutral during an exam be publicly clarified and included in proctor training in time for the April exam period.

Happy Campus Pride Week,
