Edmonton Vital Signs is an annual check-up conducted by Edmonton Community Foundation, in partnership with Edmonton Social Planning Council, to measure how the community is doing. This year we will also be focusing on individual issues, VITAL TOPICS, that are timely and important to Edmonton. Watch for these in each issue of Legacy in Action, and in the full issue of Vital Signs that will be released in October of this year.
This edition focuses on Visible Minority Women in Edmonton.
‘VISIBLE MINORITY’ Refers to persons, other than Aboriginal peoples, who are non-Caucasian in race or non-white in colour.
RACIALIZED: Racialized gender refers to the effects of race and gender processes on individuals, families, and communities. This concept recognizes that women do not experience race and gender similarly.
AUDIBLE MINORITY: An individual whose accent is different from the mainstream community. It usually is used to refer to accent discrimination and is part of a multi-faceted and interconnected web of prejudice that includes race, gender, sexuality, and many other notions of identity, whether chosen or imposed.
