Antiracism and Social Justice

Our goal is that everyone – learners, faculty, and staff – regardless of race ethnicity, color religious beliefs, national origin, rurality, gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, political beliefs, language, socio-economic status, or role – are to be valued for their individuality and contributions to the diversity and work of the Department of Pediatrics and Child Health, within the HSC – Winnipeg Children’s Hospital, and the Max Rady College of Medicine, Rady Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Manitoba. Through this goal, we ultimately hope to provide equitable care to all patients, supports and communities.
