We stand in solidarity with Black members of our community and the Black Lives Matter movement. We recognize that systemic racism is prevalent in Canadian institutions, including the University of Ottawa. One of our missions is to highlight who we, the uOttawa Bio Department community, are, both within and outside of academia. This includes the experiences of BIPOC members of our community. BioMatters commits to using our platform to amplify those voices, and to provide a space to discuss the necessary changes to achieve equity for all.
