JUNE 2 – OUR RESPONSE TO RACIAL INJUSTICE AND SYSTEMIC RACISM

Dr. Tim Rutledge, Unity Health Toronto’s President and CEO, sent out this message to the Unity Health community earlier today:

It’s been an intense few days in the U.S. and parts of Canada, including our hometown, Toronto, where a significant number of protests to end anti-Black racism, discrimination and violence have been occurring.

I can only imagine the impact this must be having on our colleagues, patients, community partners and friends who are Black – the stress, grief, perhaps reliving trauma, and/or processing death. I offer my support, allyship and solidarity. Racism has no place in our society.

Inclusivity, community and compassion are three of our core values at Unity Health. Education is also a key part of our mission –  and part of standing up against racism is educating ourselves and checking our own implicit biases. I know we can – and must – do better. We must listen and learn from those most affected and strive to be allies. It is up to all of us to do the hard work of undoing racism and effecting change.

We stand in solidarity with our Black colleagues, patients, volunteers and partners and condemn all acts of racial injustice and systemic racism. Black lives matter. 

Sincerely,
Tim
