We’re committed to creating spaces where you can bring your whole self to birthwork

DTC values community, inclusion, respect for Aboriginal perspectives, equity, diversity and access. It is through the hard work of every member of our community that these values become and continue to be a reality.

We’re proud of the work of our EDI co-leads and work to collaborate with partners internationally.

We are proud to work with students and staff to ensure that our processes are equitable and inclusive


Welcome to EDI at DTC

Advancing a sense of belonging for equity-deserving students, staff, and facilitators at Doula Canada, the EDI Team commits to addressing and dismantling oppression experienced by racialized persons; First Nations, Métis, and Inuit communities; persons with disabilities; members of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community; and women-identified individuals.

It is our mission to achieve an authentic sense of belonging for every student, staff and facilitators within the community by fostering inclusive classroom and learning experiences for our students, while intentionally recruiting equity-deserving employees and faculty.

What We Do

  •  Seek to identify and dismantle system barriers and support equity-deserving communities
  • Support equity-deserving students process experiences, navigate available options, and strategize about how to chart a path of equity and inclusion
  • Strategically advance EDI priorities at all levels of DTC
  • Sponsor events, speakers, and action campaigns to create a sense of belonging
  • Provide equity, anti-racism, and anti-oppression training and education

The EDI and Anti-Oppression Team

The EDI Co-Leads operate as an advisory body to the Directors and team.   The Co-leads are currently working on a task Force to further develop our EDI and Anti-Oppression Strategy and Action Plan.

Belonging is at the core of Doula Canada’s mission to unlock potential. When we harness the power of equity, diversity, inclusion (EDI), and anti-oppression frameworks, we unlock immense innovative potential for our work as a College and within our communities.  We welcome you and invite you to reach out if we can be of assistance.
