What We Do
The Office of Inclusion and Diversity (OID) supports Temerty Faculty of Medicine’s commitment to Excellence through Equity, one of the three strategic domains of focus named in the 2018-2023 Academic Strategic Plan.
OID works collaboratively to achieve the following initiatives:
- Design programs and policies that promote an equitable, inclusive and diverse environment
- Provide guidance and support on EDI and human rights issues
- Advise and collaborate on implementing EDI priorities
The Office of Inclusion and Diversity offers equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) workshops, information sessions, and training opportunities for learners, staff and faculty members. Request one today!
Diversity Dialogue events facilitate discussion and reflection on issues related to equity, diversity, inclusion and social justice in healthcare practice and research. Check out upcoming events or collaborate on creating one.
Have a great idea for an EDI initiative? Transform your idea into action by applying to the EDI Action Fund and receive up to $500!
If you are a Temerty Faculty of Medicine learner that is interested in equity, inclusion and diversity, join the LEAD Committee to discuss and respond to EDI concerns in a supportive community.
The Diversity Mentorship Program aims to connect U of T medical students or first year residents from underrepresented/minoritized groups to faculty mentors who are able to support and assist them in their educational and professional growth.
DivAC works to ensure that there are initiatives and strategies for inclusion, diversity and equity that are Faculty-wide with formal accountability to the Dean. It is comprised of faculty members, staff, and learners at Temerty as well as U of T community members and representatives from TAHSN partners.
