Equity and Inclusion

Equity and Inclusion

Equity and nclusion incorporated into our program and our symposia.
BCnetwork ensures everyone has an equal opportunity to participate and benefit, fostering a more diverse and welcoming environment for our educational events.
Here are BCnetwork ways to intentionally incorporate equity and inclusion:

  1. Representation and participation:
  • Actively seek participants and speakers from diverse backgrounds and create clear, unbiased presentations.
  • Diverse leadership and staff: Ensure program leadership and staff reflect the program's target audience and the wider community.
  • Accessibility: Make the program accessible to people with disabilities, including physical, sensory, and cognitive. Which means, the attendees might have suffered from side effect of breast cancer treatments and need to help by others to participate the educational events. BCnetwork also offer the necessary language interpreters, transcripts, or alternative formats for materials if attendees might need.

  1. Content and curriculum:
  • Culturally relevant Integrate curriculum with diverse perspectives and experiences into the program's content, survivors talk, and examples.
  • Address unconscious biases diagnosing breast cancer and harmful stereotypes through open discussions and critical thinking exercises like stretches and yoga.
  • Inclusive language and communication in Japanese language and BCnetwork use inclusive language that respects everyone's identity and avoids discriminatory or offensive terms.

  1. Supportive environment:
  • Establish clear policies and procedures for reporting and addressing discrimination and harassment if there is some issues occur during the events.
  • Provide free mentorship and support programs for participants from underrepresented groups.
  • Enjoy the diversity of participants and their unique contributions to the program.
