Diversity, equity, and inclusion: A knowledge exchange

Virtual workshop

Event Details

Canadian Blood Services is hosting a knowledge exchange focused on diversity, equity, and inclusion, which is scheduled to take place on Thursday, February 10, from 12 – 2:30pm ET.  This knowledge exchange is an opportunity for organizations and agencies working in the organ and tissue donation and transplantation system to share their priorities and activities relative to diversity, equity, and inclusion. For example, Canadian Blood Services has recently established an internal working group focused on diversity, equity, and inclusion and, at the knowledge exchange, we will share the work this group has undertaken to support our team (e.g. education opportunities, reading and podcast lists, etc.) and improve our processes (e.g. committee structures, speaker panels, etc.).


If you’d like to present on behalf of your organization at the knowledge exchange, please contact lindsay.wilson@blood.ca by Friday, January 21, 2022.


If you’d like to attend the event but not make a presentation, please contact donation.transplantation.secretariat@blood.ca to be added to the calendar invitation. Additional details about the presentations will be shared once they are finalized.


Finally, if there are any organizations or agencies that you would specifically like to hear from at this knowledge exchange, please let us know and we will reach out to them.
