DIVE

The Diversity, Inclusion, Values and Equity Committee

Michener’s Diversity, Inclusion, Values and Equity Committee (DIVE) strives to create a safe, inclusive, accessible and welcoming space at Michener.

The Committee’s goal is to support and empower people to bring their full selves to the workplace every day. The Committee is led by staff, but our activities and messages are intended to give a voice to all marginalized employees and students on campus. We welcome everyone regardless of race, ethnic group, socioeconomic status, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, language, religion or age.

A note about the mass graves discovered this year at former residential schools in Canada

To echo Dr. Kevin Smith, President & CEO of UHN, the uncovering of the mass graves outside former residential schools in Saskatchewan and Western Canada is a visible reminder of harm that has affected Indigenous families across Turtle Island. The afterlives of residential schools continue to be felt in the present. This is not an anomaly or isolated incident, Indigenous communities draw our attention to similar gravesites and losses in regions across the country. Residential schools are part of the fabric of colonization in Canada.

Real and lasting change must be through a collective effort. We reiterate our commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion at Michener and UHN, and commit to working in partnership with Indigenous students, staff, patients and the community.
