The “What Would You Do?” (WWYD) posters are conversation starters. They were created to be a resource for LTC homes on the journey to becoming more welcoming and inclusive spaces. The posters can complement cultural competency and sensitivity training that are already in place. Many of the posters depict micro-aggressions and encourage participants to engage in personal reflection.
These posters were designed by the Ontario CLRI and inspired by Rick Gourlie, a retired LTC administrator and creator of the 2013 award-winning ‘Mad Poster Project’. The four original LGBTQI2S+ posters were so enthusiastically received by the LTC sector that the Supporting Diversity and Inclusion in LTC Advisory Group decided to broaden the scope of the posters to also include prejudice, discrimination and assumptions around race, ability, physical appearance, language, and socio-economic status.
