  • IDEAs at Home: Decolonization & The Truth and Reconciliation Commission

    The CWC-IDEA Committee would like to invite you to have an informal, but informative conversation about how we can bring Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Accessibility into Medical Physics, our workplaces, and with our own actions. On Mon, Sept 26th at 8PM AT/7PM ET/6PM CT/5PM MT/4PM PT, we would like to discuss the topics of decolonization and the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC), and how we can apply these topics in our personal and professional roles. We will be joined by our invited speaker Etienna Moostoos-Lafferty who will lead us in learning more about these important topics.

    So please bring your beverage of choice, a snack and connect with other Medical Physicists who are passionate about diving deep into our own learnings and experiences around IDEAs. Bring your questions, bring your comments, and most of all, bring a humble and open mind. This session is open to all who are interested, so feel free to pass this invitation along.
