Commitment to EDI

We are committed to providing learners with an environment that is conducive to inclusive excellence and respectful to the principles of Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion.

We have taken several steps to achieve this:

  • Seeking diversity in our investigators and fellows
  • Appointment of an EDI-champion to support and monitor EDI activities.
  • Ensuring that training materials are developed to accommodate diverse learners.
  • Standardizing the training, mentorship and experiential learning to ensure that fellows have equitable opportunities to thrive in the program.
  • Transparency in the CANSTAT policies regarding selection, training, travel, authorship, grievances and expectations using inclusive language.
  • Tracking EDI data over time to monitor any inherent biases in the program.
  • Incorporating EDI principles in training modules.
  • Appointment of an ombudsperson to address grievances and complaints.
  • Continuously identifying and implementing best practices to enhance equity.
