Recognized as one of Canada's Best Diversity Employers (2016)

Here are some of the reasons why Mount Sinai Hospital was selected as one of Canada's Best Diversity Employers (2016):

  • Mount Sinai Hospital launched the "Are You an an Ally" campaign to educate the broader workforce on how to act as an ally for persons with mental health and addictions issues, racialized people, people with physical disabilities, LGBT people, and people who are trans, intersex, and two spirit -- is also planning to roll-out the campaign to include gender (women), Aboriginal peoples and seniors
  • Mount Sinai Hospital is currently in the process of implementing provisions to its new Gender Identity Policy, which features guidelines on the fair treatment of all trans, intersex and two-spirit patients and staff
  • Mount Sinai Hospital manages an Anti Homophobia-Transphobia Action (AHA) subcommittee, which is responsible for creating a welcoming environment for LGBT staff and patients -- the committee hosts monthly meetings and plans annual events to strengthen connections to community organizations and groups

"Sinai Health System is accustomed to winning awards and accolades... for our research, our clinical work and for our wonderful organization. But, winning the award for diversity is the achievement for which we are so proud... we believe that our focus on diversity and inclusion makes us a much better organization... not just for those of us who work here... but for our patients who receive care from us. This focus on diversity is not a fad for us, or a one off initiative... it is at the core of our values." Joan S., Executive Vice President, Finance and Chief Operations Officer
