March 21 | 11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. Eastern Time 

Significant concerns impacting healthcare have been highlighted the last 2-3 years, including subjects of health equity, diversity, inclusion, and anti-racism – and their impact on people within organizations, and those living in communities. Leadership imperatives during the recovery stage of a crisis are driven by a people focus on the centre, and currently many Ontario Health Teams, communities and organizations are wrestling both internally (policies, recruitment processes, education) and externally with culturally safe service provision. To impact change in this area, leaders must first understand themselves.

These sessions are intended to support leaders individually on the Equity, Inclusion, Diversity and Anti-Racism (EIDAR) journey and provide actionable information and sharing on leading practices in this space.

SESSION 1 LEAN IN – How to get started? - A Reflective Self Leadership Learning Opportunity Toward Supporting Diversity, Equity, and Inclusiveness Leaders will gain a deeper understanding of:
1. the cultural safety continuum, cultural humility, and competency (tools for individuals to plot their course)
2. ways to get started on a personal learning journey and first steps
3. Allyship, and risks that may cause us to slide back
4. personal biases and how we honour these and then move past them
5. learning to listen
6. confidence to start a journey and feel confident about your place in the journey and how to move forward

Note for all participants - This session will be followed by another follow up session (April 20) in which we will come back for a conversation with the facilitator – intended to support leaders with a safe space for discussion and reflections on learnings, experience, and further reinforce practical application.
