"When I joined EHL Vancouver, I didn't understand the opportunities available to me within the BC healthcare industry. By attending events and working with highly-driven interdisciplinary executive team members, I'm proud to say I have a much better understanding of the health system as a whole (and it's opportunities)."
Alex Chui, Past Chair


    "EHL is a platform where I can learn from our healthcare leaders, meet and be mentored by our healthcare leaders, and hopefully -- with the knowledge and networks obtained through EHL -- become a healthcare leader."
    Charmaine Viaje,
    Director of Partnerships

    EHL Vancouver is pleased to introduce our Inspiring Leaders- Interview Series. We are honoured to feature...

    On October 14th, Emerging Health Leaders Vancouver partnered with The Federation of Social Services of BC to host our very first event of the membership year. From Acknowledgement to Allyship: Understanding the In Plain Sight Report.

    We would like to thank all our attendees, and extend our heartfelt gratitude to our guest speakers Dawn Thomas, Acting Associate Deputy Minister for Indigenous Health at the Ministry of Health, and Harmony Johnson, Interim VP for Indigenous Wellness and Reconciliation at Providence Health Care.

    During the event findings from the In Plain Sight report were reviewed. One of the survey findings show that 84% of Indigenous respondents reported some form of discrimination in health care. A few of the top reported reasons why racism persists include:

    1️⃣ Employees not willing to speak up

    2️⃣ Lack of accountability by leadership to stop discriminatory behaviour

    3️⃣ Insufficient numbers of Indigenous health care professionals

    How do you see your role and responsibility in disrupting racism? How are you prepared to show up differently?

    Allow yourself to sit with the discomfort, reflect, and take responsibility for making positive contributions.
