You are invited to attend a day of lectures and workshops at the inaugural Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry's Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Symposium.

The FoMD honours and recognizes diversity as a strength and an opportunity for growth. We believe that a part of our well-being is celebrating who we are, recognizing gaps and celebrating success. This event aims to shed light on different aspects of diversity in our workplace and touch upon diversity and access to health care.

Two lectures and a choice between two concurrent workshops will be offered in both the morning and in the afternoon.

This free event will bring together faculty, staff and learners from the entire university and experts from multiple disciplines.

REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED (seating is limited)
