April 17, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

The Office of Respectful Environments, Equity, Diversity & Inclusion at the Faculty of Medicine invites you to join us in a conversation with Jorden Hendry. Jorden Hendry is Tsimshian/settler and a member of the Lax Kw’alaams band with nine years of experience contributing to reconciliation and anti-racism in the health and educational system. As a PhD student at the University of British Columbia, Jorden studies Indigenous Public Health and the systems that drive health disparities.

This virtual event is part of the IBPOC Voices, a monthly series led by Dr. Neila Miled the REDI Anti-racism Advisor. IBPOC Voices is an opportunity to meet and have a conversation with guests who identify as Indigenous, Black and people of color. This series centers IBPOC experiences and knowledge, and highlights how they navigate the different challenges and how they engage with equity, diversity and inclusion. It is also a space where guests talk about their vision of an equitable and just environment.
