Celebrating Pride Month 2024

As Pride Month 2024 begins, we at Nurses Specialized in Wound, Ostomy, and Continence Canada (NSWOCC) proudly stand in solidarity with the 2SLGBTQIA+ community. This month is a vital time to celebrate diversity, promote inclusivity, and recognize the ongoing mission towards equality & equity.

Our commitment at NSWOCC is rooted in the belief that "Every Person Deserves Specialized Wound, Ostomy, and Continence Care." This includes fostering an environment where every individual, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity, feels safe, respected, and valued.

At NSWOCC, we believe that true celebration of Pride goes beyond just words of recognition. In addition, it involves taking actionable steps to support the 2SLGBTQIA+ community. To achieve equity, diversity, inclusivity, and accessibility among the 2SLGBTQIA+ Community and other marginalized groups, NSWOCC will provide:

  1. A Safe Environment:

  2.  NSWOCC strives to create an open, inclusive, and equitable environment in which every person has the opportunity to flourish.

  3. NSWOCC will support zero-tolerance for discrimination and harassment.

  4. Respectful Communication:

  5. Enforce respectful communication and cooperation between all constituents.

  6.  Support accessible digital communications.

  7. Equitable Access:

  8. Provide access and information to its Board, Core Program Leaders Members, Students, Partners including Industry, Staff, Faculty, and potential applicants in order that they may support the organization's work.

  9. Support architectural access to all for on-site events.

  10. Equitable Opportunity:

  11. Provide equitable opportunity for inclusivity.

  12. Have Leaders, Members, Students, Volunteers and Staff who reflect the increasingly diverse population that we serve bringing a broad scope of contributions.

  13. Offer opportunities that engage all Members and Students in the work of NSWOCC.

  14.  Supporting Policies: Develop and align policies and practices tailored to marginalized and racialized groups.

  15. Cultural Safety Practices: Explore, develop, and implement cultural safety practices.

  16. Cultural humility and Safety: this is achieved by a genuine attempt to understand the individual as it relates to race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, education and or religion.

Ultimately, Pride Month is not just about the past and present; it's also about paving the way for a more inclusive future. As Pride Month unfolds, let's remember that each step toward inclusivity and understanding makes a difference.

On behalf of NSWOCC, we wish you a happy Pride Month!
