The Canadian Academy of Nursing presents the Second National Summit on Racism in Nursing and Health Care, sponsored by Johnson & Johnson.
We are honoured to have Desmond Cole moderate a panel of nursing leaders, including Birgit Umaigba, Lisa Bourque-Bearskin, and Samantha Louie-Poon. To facilitate our action going forward, Cole will first engage our panelists in an in-depth discussion on what we’ve learned from recent research into racism, including its broader impacts on public health and health care. We’ll use this research to propose solutions and discuss next steps.
In the afternoon, we will showcase the work of nursing leaders and organizations actively moving towards an equity-based and anti-racist agenda. This will also be your opportunity to engage with attendees on the solutions that are needed to achieve results.
