Our discussions on diversity, equality and inclusion in the treatment of eating disorders, which has occurred as a part of the last few Renfrew Center Foundation Conferences, were so inspiring and motivating that we've made a decision to continue them throughout the year. As a result, we are inviting you to join us in our efforts to continue the conversation and examine together the forementioned topics, as well as the racial disparity experienced by BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Color) and others who have been marginalized and continue to experience racial disparity. In this lively networking event, participants will discuss a variety of topics affecting BIPOC individuals, with the intension that providers of care will be able to move from cultural competency to cultural humility.
