New Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Toolkits and Community for Practice

February 1, 2021

The Canadian College of Health Leaders and the Canadian Health Leadership Network are proud to partner with the Empowering Women Leaders in Health Initiative led by uOttawa Chair in Gender, Diversity and the Professions Dr. Ivy Bourgeault and her research team in the launch of these evidence-informed Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) Toolkits and Community for Practice. 

The EDI Toolkits, developed with funding from Status of Women Canada, aims to support diverse women’s leadership in health care and academic health sciences building on the foundation of the five LEADS in a Caring Environment Framework capabilities, or ‘levels of action’.  

Two accompanying ally toolkits – The Ally Toolkit for Men and the Ally Toolkit in Support of Diverse Leadership – aim to support inclusive leadership more broadly. 

Since both men and women have an important role to play as allies, mentors and sponsors who support diverse women to move into leadership roles, these toolkits are available to help promote inclusivity across all leadership positions. 

Make sure to visit the LEADS Community for Practice website to find out how you can ADOPT and ADAPT some of the promising practices included in these toolkits.
