A message from the dean

I am proud to announce that in August the Rady Faculty of Health Sciences’ Faculty Executive Council (FEC) approved the RFHS Disruption of all Forms of Racism policy, the first anti-racism policy to be passed by any faculty or post-secondary institution in Canada.

As a faculty, we have an opportunity at this important juncture in our history to not only be leaders standing against racism but to be disruptors. Each of us needs to recognize existing racism within our faculty and to take responsibility to eliminate all forms of racism, to promote safe work and learning environments free of racism, and to intervene when witnessing any racism.

The Disruption of all Forms of Racism policy was developed by the Rady Faculty’s Office of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) anti-racism working group, under the leadership of Vice-Dean (Indigenous) Dr. Marcia Anderson; Director of EDI Jackie Gruber; and Anti-Racism Practice lead Dr. Delia Douglas.
