Black History Month - Employee Resources

The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on racialized and Indigenous communities combined with the global Black Lives Matter movement has made the inequities in our society more visible. Providing Memorial employees with consistent and continued learning opportunities to support the dismantling of systemic racism is important, especially at this time.

In recognition of Black History Month, Employment Equity has compiled the following list of resources available to Memorial employees.


Addressing the Black Lives Matter Movement at Work – Feb. 23, 1- 2p.m. EST
