Eliminating sexism, shame, and stigma from health experiences.

Our Programs

Medical Education

Patient Advocacy

Undoing Stigma

The Medical Education program aims to educate current and future healthcare providers about gender bias in medicine and how to overcome it. It looks critically at how healthcare as an institution is rooted in sexism, racism, and ableism. The Medical Education portfolio recognizes that no amount of patient advocacy will undo oppressive structures, healthcare professionals must be given skills, resources, and space to combat gender health inequity.

The Patient Advocacy program supports individuals navigating health, wellness, and medical care within an anti-sexist framework. Here we recognize that patients are never taught how to approach healthcare professionals or why they may face inequity. We hold space for patient stories and ensure that their voices are represented in research, policy, and medical curriculum. 

The Undoing Stigma portfolio challenges the shame and taboos that prevent people from speaking openly about their bodies. Stigma creates self-perpetuating conditions that silence people and make them afraid of vocalizing their lived experiences. Here everyone can get involved with advocating for more inclusive and equitable care.
