The CCMS Board has been approached by Doctors of BC to support their Diversity & Inclusion Survey/Initiative. Our Board has agreed that this is a valuable initiative and would like to urge our members to participate in this process.
As we all know, the origin of our Society can be traced back to more than 30 years ago, when physicians with Chinese ethnic background across Canada got together to protest against discriminatory policies in medical education. Our Society, and the Canadian Chinese community as a whole, have come a long way since then.
We applaud the Diversity & Inclusion Initiative from Doctors of BC, and we believe inputs from our members are essential in this process.
