An important discusson - Dr. Carrie Bourassa on Cultural Safety: Setting the Context

On Wednesday, November 14th, the University of Sudbury welcomed Dr. Carrie Bourassa, Scientific Director of CIHR's Institute of Indigenous Peoples’ Health (IIPH), to present on Cultural Safety. During her presentation, she explored the concepts of cultural safety and anti-racism and what that means in the university setting.

“My hope is that this conversation will help inform us, as members of the University of Sudbury community, about how we can continue to do our work in a good way; in a way that builds on the University of Sudbury’s reconciliation work and enhances our continual efforts to create a welcoming, inclusive and culturally supportive institution,” explained Sarah Rice, Director – Indigenous Portfolio at the University of Sudbury.
