it's where dermatology lives
Diversity & Inclusion Cultural Competency Toolkit
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.
