Deadline Extended! Allied for Inclusivity in LTC: A Forum to Build Connections

Does your long-term care (LTC) home want to inspire other LTC homes by sharing your equity, diversity and inclusion initiatives?

Are you a Canadian researcher in the area of equity, diversity and inclusion and ageing relevant to the Ontario long-term care sector?

The Ontario CLRI Supporting Diversity and Inclusion Committee invite you to join our virtual forum: Allied for Inclusivity in LTC: A Forum to Build Connections. This is a half-day event that will be held on Wednesday, February 9, 2022. Our forum will provide an opportunity for LTC home representatives to come together with researchers to learn more about equity, diversity and inclusion in the LTC sector.

We are inviting LTC homes in Ontario and Canadian Researchers who would like to present their equity, diversity and inclusion work.

COVID-19 has shone a bright light on the systemic injustices, inequity and significant disparities experienced by individuals marginalized by society.  As we focus on action moving forward, our forum aims to build collaborative conversations towards inclusive, equitable and affirming care, services and work environments in LTC communities.

  • Opening and closing keynote presentations from experts in the field of equity, diversity and inclusion in health!
  • Presentations from Ontario LTC homes sharing equity, diversity and inclusion initiatives they are implementing in their home
  • Presentations from Canadian researchers focused on equity, diversity, and inclusion relevant to the LTC sector
