Guiding Principles

  • Educate, support and hold accountable ourselves and our peers to create an equitable and supportive environment

  • Be bold, push boundaries and embrace anti-racism with respect, humility and transparency
  • Recognize opportunities for growth within all facets of Pathology and empower each member of the department to participate in its growth
