CIHR: Addressing Systemic Racism

Posted by Jaq-Lin Larder on December 12, 2022 in Announcements

In its 2021-2031 Strategic Plan, CIHR committed to addressing systemic racism faced by researchers in the health research funding system. To support this work, CIHR is co-developing an anti-racism action plan with health researchers who have been impacted by racism, with the aim of addressing systemic racism across all aspects of the CIHR funding system.

Summary report: Virtual engagement sessions to discuss CIHR’s anti-racism action plan

From March to May 2022, CIHR hosted a series of eight small group virtual engagement sessions to discuss our approach for an anti-racism action plan. The goals of the sessions were to discuss participant-identified barriers that CIHR's anti-racism action plan could work towards addressing and to prioritize the actions CIHR should take to address these barriers.
