About Equity in Medicine

Mission Statement

Educate on Equity, Diversity & Inclusion in Medicine

Create a safe space for discussion of EDI

Build relationships to expand advocacy & affect policy development

Vision

To see Equity, Diversity & Inclusion embedded into the culture of all Canadian Healthcare Organizations

History

Equity in Medicine began in 2018 after winning a grant from the Canadian Medical Association (CMA).

In 2019, we built a community to support and empower our members committed to equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) & we hosted several high quality educational live chats.

In 2020, we became an independent group and continued to host our live sessions, including an Intersectionality panel, two Anti-Racism workshops, and a presentation on the Gender Pay Gap.
