Communities of Inclusion

We are building a strong organizational culture that unifies and empowers our team members across the province. At its core is our commitment to diversity and inclusion.

Strengthening our ability to lead by investing in our people is a priority. 

We can all benefit from feeling a sense of community and belonging in the workplace. Our goal is to encourage an environment where everyone can be their true, authentic self.

One of the benefits of becoming an Ontario Health team member is the opportunity to join one of our four Communities of Inclusion (COI): 

ARISE (Anti-Racism, Inclusion, Social Justice, Equity) 
A community for Black colleagues across the organization 

Nation to Nation
A culturally safe gathering of Nations for peer support and cultural knowledge of First Nations, Inuit, Métis and urban Indigenous people and communities

Pride in Health
A community of inclusion for Two-Spirit, Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Trans, Queer, Questioning, Intersex and Asexual (2SLGBTQIA+) team members 

Women in Motion 
An inclusive peer support group dedicated to empowering cis and trans women, genderqueer and nonbinary people through networking and learning opportunities

Benefits of Joining a Community of Inclusion

Each Community of Inclusion is based on building community, providing support and contributing to both personal and professional development in the workplace. 

Becoming a member of a Community of Inclusion means meeting other team members who share a common identity and supporting one another in advancing a respectful and inclusive company culture. Members can share insights and perceptions on navigating the organization and contribute to strategic equity initiatives.
