With the mission to revolutionize healthcare for a healthier and more equitable world, equity is a core tenet of Women’s College Hospital (WCH). With the committed leadership across the organization, along with a newly established Office of Equity, WCH has made strides towards building a strong and bold culture of diversity, equity and inclusion for employees, physicians, learners, volunteers, community and patients over the past year.
Since the formation of the Office of Equity in 2022, there has been a marked increase and alignment of equity-based initiatives throughout the hospital – from the establishment of the hospital’s first Employee Resource Group to a transparent update on WCH’s journey to dismantle anti-Black racism and the creation of an Equity Roadmap guiding the way into 2024.
The Equity [r]Evolution is a collective journey that has only been made possible because of the culture of caring, collaboration and commitment to listen and foster safe spaces across #TeamWCH. In this photo essay, we share impactful initiatives and powerful testimonials about the equity impacts that WCH has achieved.
