Equity, diversity and inclusivity are crucial to the future of Canadian science. This is a topic of national importance that has garnered attention and action from the federal government, the tri-council funding agencies (CIHR, NSERC and SSHRC) and scientists across the country. LHRD’s Exchange aims to foster conversations and influence policy regarding diversity and inclusivity in health research, including gender, and how the health research community can work together to identify and implement solutions.

Dr. Janet Smylie, 2018 LHRD keynote speaker as part of The Lucille & Norton Wolf Health Research Lecture Series, will also join Exchange to share her experiences as a female Indigenous physician and health researcher. She will join a panel of local and national health researchers in this discussion.
