The CAR Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) Working Group is excited to announce the release of a new EDI toolkit document. This accomplishment is the result of collaborative efforts led by Dr. Charlotte Yong-Hing and the dedicated members of the EDI Working Group. Sincere gratitude is extended to the volunteers who contributed their time and unwavering dedication to this significant endeavour.
This toolkit presents a comprehensive plan to improve equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) within Radiology in Canada. It offers clear and detailed explanations of key EDI concepts, creating a solid foundation for initiating and maintaining EDI efforts. The toolkit also outlines a practical approach for establishing EDI committees within radiology departments, emphasizing their crucial role in guiding and advancing EDI strategies.
Furthermore, the toolkit explores innovative methods tailored to promote diversity in the radiology workforce. This includes creating inclusive job announcements, using unbiased candidate search techniques, conducting fair evaluations of applications, and forming diverse recruitment committees.
By embracing the recommended strategies and principles outlined in this toolkit, radiologists can foster an environment that promotes EDI, ultimately leading to improved patient care.
