"Anti-Black racism exists in Toronto. I believe this is an important statement for the Mayor of Toronto to make, as we strive for inclusion and to live by our values as the most diverse city in the world."
- Mayor John Tory, The Toronto Action Plan to Confront Anti-Black Racism, November, 2017
During these tumultuous times, racism is a common theme in the global media.
Webster's Dictionary define racism as a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities, and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race.
The UHN Black Legacy Committee has been sponsored by the organization's Executive and empowered to contribute to UHN's vision of A Healthier World, as detailed in the recently published 2019-2023 Strategic Plan.
It is within this context that The Black Legacy Committee developed this year's UHN Black History Month event theme: "Become an Ally and Combat Racism."
It will take place today, Tuesday, Feb. 26, at noon in the DeGasperis Conservatory at Toronto General Hospital. In addition to a panel discussion, it will feature remarks from Dr. Kevin Smith, UHN President & CEO, and Emma Pavlov, EVP, Human Resources and Organizational Development.
Becoming an Ally is a journey which requires acknowledgement of anti-Black racism, self-reflection, and self-education. Everyone is invited to listen to life stories and join the conversation with panel members.
Learn what it means to be an ally. Begin the journey.
