About the event

The Mentoring Future Leaders: Insights and Dialogue sessions offer a platform for established leaders in women's health to share mentorship insights, career trajectories, and pearls of wisdom, followed by interactive Q&A.

On April 5th, we are privileged to host Dr. Notisha Massaquoi, a distinguished advocate with over three decades of commitment to advancing women's healthcare in Canada. As an Assistant Professor at the University of Toronto, Scarborough, with cross-appointments in the Faculties of Social Work and Medicine, Dr. Massaquoi is celebrated for her work in founding the Black Health Equity Lab (https://www.bhel.ca/), a groundbreaking initiative dedicated to conducting community-based health research and collaborating with Black communities. Through this platform, Dr. Massaquoi facilitates the development of advocacy tools, strategies, and programs aimed at enhancing health outcomes, well-being, and success within Canadian systems. Her academic journey, including a PhD in Social Justice Education, has been complemented by leadership roles in various health service organizations, notably for two decades as the Executive Director of Women's Health in Women's Hands Community Health Centre - the only Community Health Centre in North America specializing in primary healthcare for Black and racialized women. Globally consulted by the United Nations Social Development Forum on racism's impact on workforces, Dr. Massaquoi is esteemed as one of Canada's foremost experts in building equity-responsive organizations. Her advocacy has spurred Canadian institutions to confront anti-Black racism and prioritize race-based data collection. Recognized for her tireless efforts, she has been a leading force in addressing systemic racism in Canada.
