What we do

The Mandate Adobe PDF (139 KB) of the Office of Equity, Diversity and Gender Issues is to assist the Director of the Office of Equity, Diversity and Gender Issues and the Dean of the Faculty in raising awareness, encouraging sensitivity, and highlighting pathways to improve gender and equity issues in all aspects of faculty activity (undergraduate and postgraduate education, research, faculty development, and the working environment for both faculty members and support staff).

Who we are

The Advisory Committee has representation from each Department, as well as representation from the Aesculapian Society (medical students), PARO (residents), the Graduate Student’s Association and the Faculty of Medicine Postdoctoral Association.  Members of this committee act locally to monitor and promote equity issues within individual departments/sectors.  Provincial, National and International experience are shared. The impact of current policies and climate is discussed and recommendations are made for Faculty of Medicine policy development.
