The BCPVPA is committed to a journey where we are learning about leading for equity and allyship as an organization through listening, consultation, engagement, research, and an examination of our strategies and structures. We are grateful that our members and friends are on their own learning and teaching journeys, and that they have shared their perspectives through articles featured in BCPVPA's publications Principl(ed) and Leading: Back to School.
