Social Justice Info Night
Please join us for the first Department of Psychiatry Social Justice “Info Night” on Wednesday, October 17th from 6-8pm at the Li Ka Shing Knowledge Institute, 209 Victoria St., Room 216.
This evening is intended to connect those interested in learning about social justice initiatives happening in the department, and to discuss next steps about how to collaborate together on social justice initiatives, including what social justice within the department will look like over the next year.
We are also at an exciting time in terms of education in our department. A few months ago, a new position of Postgraduate Social Justice Lead was created (with Dr. Michaela Beder as the first lead) with an aim to consider and integrate social justice issues into the CBD curriculum - topics such as (but not limited to): Recovery, Cultural Psychiatry, Advocacy, Poverty, Equity, Gender, Discrimination, Sexuality, Identity, Power/Privilege, Systems, and Indigenous Mental Health. Your input would be valued on what this role can look like going forward.
Please come out to meet fellow colleagues, residents, graduate students, fellows and faculty interested in social justice and to share your ideas and passions! Please RSVP so we have a sense of how many people to expect. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

This event is supported by the Division of Equity, Gender and Population.
