Diversity & Inclusion Cultural Competency Toolkit
for Dermatologists

The Dermatology Industry Taskforce on Diversity, Inclusiveness & Equity ("DiTiDE") is a volunteer committee consisting of Canadian life sciences managers and executives, physicians, and allied parties who are committed to the strategies and practices to support a diverse and representative workplace, health system, and society. DiTiDE members believe that by working together we can make a positive impact on the workplace and the boarder health system.

The mission statement for the cultural competency toolkit is to share Canadian dermatology stakeholder-validated best practices and to make recommendations to support doctors working with people with diverse skin tones to help fill resource gaps.
