On February 10, 2023, iCON and Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH) Indigenous Health hosted another Indigenous Health Round session titled “Who is an Ally and Who Says So?” We were delighted to have guest speakers Dr. Laurie Harding and Dr. Linda Diffey facilitated the discussion to unpack terminologies such as allyship, performativity, solidarity, white savourism, and more.
This session discussed the difference between ally and white savourism, how to apply knowledge in an ongoing self-reflective assessment, what is white performativity, and what is the difference between allyship and co-conspirator.

This event was organized by VCH Indigenous Health and UBC iCON (Department of Emergency Medicine), and supported by the B.C. Ministry of Health Patients as Partners Initiative and the Vancouver Physician Staff Association.
