Transforming culture towards greater inclusivity

Equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) are values that are being spotlighted and discussed across Canada. While the majority of interactions in UBC’s Faculty of Medicine (FoM) working and learning environments are respectful, there appears to be a deep desire and commitment to develop a more inclusive and diverse environment among all groups and at all levels within the Faculty of Medicine.

It is indeed timely that this important work is being spearheaded by the newly formed Office of Respectful Environments, Equity, Diversity & Inclusion (REDI), led by Ms. Roslyn Goldner, the Executive Director of the Office and Dr. Maria Hubinette, Assistant Dean, EDI.

To understand their view of inclusion and their vision of transformation, we spoke with Ms. Goldner and Dr. Hubinette.

Resource Highlight
The Office of Faculty Development and Post Graduate Medical Education Program has developed the Gender Bias in the Learning Environment. This module is informed by the Faculty of Medicine expectations for an inclusive learning environment free from gender bias, and provides guidance for faculty, learners and staff on how to address actions that are not aligned with those expectations, particularly from the perspective of bystanders or witnesses. It provides an introduction to inclusion and equitable treatment based on gender identity and it is intended to promote collaborative discussions that result in collective learning and commitments to change.

Please tell us your most memorable moment…
A more recent memorable moment is getting my dog. Yes, I got a pandemic puppy! Well not a puppy, he’s 7 years old and absolutely lovely. His name is Lucky, but we feel like the lucky ones! Lucky is a rescue from Texas who demands lots of treats and scratches, which we are happy to give.
