Osler serves one of the most diverse and fastest-growing regions in the province. We all play an important role in ensuring our environment is welcoming and that staff, physicians, volunteers, patients and their families feel respected. As a result, equity and inclusiveness have become part of who we are and are interwoven into our everyday practices.
We are excited to announce that for the third year in a row, Osler has been selected as one of Canada’s Best Diversity Employers. This outstanding achievement is a testament to our commitment to understanding and appreciating the unique beliefs and values of our staff, patients and their families.
The Canada's Best Diversity Employers competition recognizes the nation's leading organizations when it comes to creating exceptional workplace environment and inclusiveness programs. The winners of the Best Diversity Employers for 2015 are featured on canadastop100.com/diversity and in a special magazine supplement published by the Globe and Mail to recognize these employers. A copy of the article where Osler is featured is attached.
We are excited about our work in the areas of diversity, equity and inclusiveness. In the next few weeks, Osler will be participating in an exploratory tour to the Punjab region in India, where a small clinical team will meet with several hospitals and non-governmental organizations. Through this mission, we expect to better understand how we can partner with health care providers there to create innovative programs that address specific health challenges and explore ways Osler can help achieve health equity in our own local community.
