All of us Standing Strong
Events of the past year have heightened our awareness and deepened our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I). To truly live our values, we must include and respect all individuals and embrace their unique qualities, dimensions and characteristics.
Advancing Health Equity and Access for British Columbians
In British Columbia, 10 LifeLabs locations participated in a pilot run by the Rick Hansen Foundation (RHF). RHF assessed the accessibility of these locations based on the holistic user experience of people with mobility, vision and hearing disabilities, and deemed the locations ‘RHF Accessibility Certified.’
At the same time, we’re helping increase equity and respect in our communities. We’re using our communications channels to support the BC Centre for Disease Control Foundation and their efforts to bring attention to the opioid crisis and to promote the use of respectful, non-stigmatizing language related to substance use disorders, addiction and people who use drugs.
