Healthcare Excellence Canada is hosting several virtual learning opportunities aimed at building our collective capacity to be equitable and inclusive in our work, as we engage with a broad diversity of people with lived experience of the health system.
Join us to explore practical approaches to mobilizing collective action towards dismantling systems of oppression, inequality and inequity in healthcare.
These sessions feature examples of initiatives designed to address inequity within healthcare organizations and systems. Participants will build an understanding of approaches that help foster more equitable and inclusive engagement with a broad diversity of people in the health system.
Register for both sessions using a single sign-up form.
The May 2 session will be offered in English with simultaneous interpretation in French. The June 6 session will be offered in French with simultaneous interpretation in English. Visual interpretation in ASL and LSQ will also be provided for both sessions. Recordings will be shared after each event.
These sessions draw on the Coin Model of Privilege and Critical Allyship and anti-oppression approaches presented in the first series of this learning exchange, which you can learn more about below.
This series explored trauma-informed practice and engagement as a basis for fostering the safe and trusting relationships needed to engage meaningfully with individuals from equity-deserving groups.
The sessions examined practical approaches to trauma-informed practice and engagement and instructive case studies to help participants build their capacity to promote health equity.

This three-session series laid the foundation for taking an anti-oppression approach to equity, diversity and inclusion.
The first two sessions introduced the Coin Model of Privilege and Critical Allyship (Nixon, 2019), a framework for understanding the impact of unearned advantage and disadvantage produced by social structures that uses an intersectional approach to analyze systems of inequality. The learning in these sessions supported participants to reflect on their own positionality, as an opening for understanding and challenging systems of inequality to create more equitable care.
Using the Coin Model as its foundation, the third session provided a case study that invited participants to further reflect on unconscious bias and its impact on different people, including within a healthcare environment.
