Dear Colleagues,

Please join us on November 30 to learn more about the current and planned anti-racism actions and initiatives underway at the Faculty of Medicine.

Dermot Kelleher, Dean of the Faculty of Medicine and Vice-President of Health, will host a dynamic, one-hour session featuring an update on the Faculty’s multi-year plan to transform our culture by creating and sustaining respectful and inclusive learning and work environments free from racist attitudes and behaviours. The session will feature a diverse group of presenters from across the Faculty currently engaged in anti-racist initiatives.

During the event, there will be time to ask questions and share ideas on how we can collectively advance and practice anti-racism in our community. Alternatively, we invite you to email your ideas and comments to All communications will be held in strict confidence.

All faculty, staff and students are invited to attend. Click below for the live stream event and Q&A.

Date: November 30, 2020

We hope this session will begin a dialogue in our community that will raise awareness and sustain our commitment to collectively practice anti-racism in our learning and work environments.
