Let’s Talk About Anti-Black Racism and Discrimination in Nursing
This is a monthly webinar series designed for members of the public interested in receiving updates on RNAO’s Black Nurses Task Force and to engage them in meaningful conversations that will inform the work of the Task Force. The Black Nurses Task Force has a mandate to tackle anti-Black racism and discrimination within the nursing profession. Although people of all races are entitled to legislated protection under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, 1982 and the Canadian Human Rights Act, 1977, Black people are not guaranteed true protection from systemic racism in all sectors (health care, business, politics, etc.), academic institutions (universities, colleges) and organizations. Black nurses are subject to racism in all of the aforementioned sectors, institutions and organizations, as racism continues to be deeply embedded in the health system and structures within Ontario.
