Respect the DifferenceTM
Changemaker Toolkit

The study of genetics has given us a whole new understanding of ourselves and why we are who we are.

Did you know that 99% of human DNA is the same?

With so much in common genetically, how we respond to what makes each of us different is our individual choice. Let’s Respect The DifferenceTM.

At NOSM, we are coming together to create a culture of diversity, inclusion, respect, social accountability and wellness. Let’s work and learn in a culture of kindness and #RespectTheDifference.

Read more about NOSM’s Mission, Vision, and Values.

Be a Changemaker.

Be the one who desires change in the world and gathers knowledge and resources, to make it happen.

We all have the potential to be changemakers, and we have the mutual responsibility to create a culture of kindness, respect and compassion.

  • Be motivated to achieve a change that will help the state of humankind.
  • Reach as many people as possible to help build momentum for this movement.
  • Take action to make that change happen.

The Changemaker Toolkit provides you with the tools and resources you need to get onboard and spark this important change. We hope that together, we can ignite a positive cultural change that is grounded in respect and reaches beyond the NOSM community. We welcome all  Canadian medical schools and the medical sector as a whole to step up and Respect The DifferenceTM.

It all starts here. And it all starts with you.
