    Join us, during Pride month, as we celebrate the full diversity and inclusion of our hospital!

    Holland Bloorview is committed to creating a safe and welcoming space where everyone belongs. This month, the hospital is coming together to share and honour the history, courage and diversity of our LGBTQ+ community.

    Through our no boundaries philosophy, our organization is dedicated to driving social justice for all children, youth and families. In support of this goal, we aim to advance equity, inclusion and diversity within the hospital and the community.

    We accomplish this through many initiatives that support our community such as our equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) lens, an easy-to-use tool to help ensure we integrate EDI in all of our work. Most recently, we updated over 50 of our single-stalled washrooms to have gender-neutral signs.

    We are thrilled to celebrate Pride and we are looking forward to the exciting events taking place this month at the hospital. Join us on Wednesday, June 6 from 1 -2 p.m. for the Canadian Centre for Diversity and Inclusion webinar, presented by our EDI committee.

    We also invite everyone to come out and participate at Holland Bloorview’s Family Pride booth on Saturday, June 23 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., for a fun day of family-friendly activities, games and food. If you are interested in volunteering for this event please contact Megan Stefura at mstefura@hollandbloorview.ca
