We are committed to diversity and inclusiveness as a foundational tenet of the care we provide and the kind of community we believe is healthy and safe for all members. We believe in equality for all people and seek to promote health and well-being regardless of race, religion, colour, ethnicity, differing abilities, gender identity or sexual orientation. We condemn any intolerance, ignorance, negativity and injustice against the Black community.
It is not enough to simply denounce racial injustice. We must know and live the values we hold, set clear expectations and determine what behaviours are intolerable. We must also develop specific actions to address systemic racism and demonstrate courage in recognizing, calling out and championing change for the betterment of humanity, particularly those suffering from injustice. We commit to listening and learning, developing a deeper understanding of these issues so we can take action; continuing to evolve our diverse and inclusive culture; and striving, every day, to work collectively to nurture the environment necessary to make a stronger, safer, more inclusive world.
