CMG Elections 2019 – Candidate profile: Khaleel Mohammed
My name is Khaleel Mohammed. I’m putting myself forward to represent you as Director of Human Rights and Equity.
I’ve been a card-carrying and proud union member starting with NABET in 1989 (which eventually became CEP, and is now Unifor).
Currently, I’ve been a CMG member since I started with CBC in 2011.
Over many years, I’ve been a supporter, mentor and teacher to my peers, and I’ve had supervisory leadership roles with the different broadcasters for whom I worked.
Outside of work, I’ve been a parent council member for two different schools simultaneously, and last year, I had the opportunity to be Chair of our local high school council, which was a rewarding and educational experience.
During that tenure, the biggest success we had was in creating the council’s first-ever Constitution, which laid the groundwork for a well-organised and effective team, and built a framework by which all future councils could learn from and emote.
Prior to that, the council was in a disarray for years, with individuals favouring their own agendas instead of what was best for the community at large.
As Director of Human Rights and Equity, I will take my collective past experiences and put them to good use in this role, being a proponent of fairness, justice, and working for the common good.
I thank you for your consideration.
“To the world, you may be just one person, but to one person, you just might be the world.”
