Equity, Diversity and Inclusion
The Lawrence S. Bloomberg Faculty of Nursing is committed to ensuring an equitable and inclusive community.
Our Faculty is in the process of establishing an Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Indigenous Reconciliation (EDIIR) Committee. The EDIIR Committee will address existing Bloomberg Faculty of Nursing policies, processes and practices to promote inclusive excellence. Our current working group has released a Call for Nominations inviting members of the Bloomberg Faculty of Nursing, including students, staff, faculty and alumni, to participate.
The EDIIR Committee is responsible for supporting the Faculty’s commitment to reconciliation, anti-discrimination, and belonging. Social justice is part of the Faculty’s set of organizational values and central to the aim of nursing practice. This Committee will function in an advisory capacity to amplify the diverse voices of those who have historically faced obstacles in the profession of nursing and society.
