“The secret, Alice, is to surround yourself with people who make your heart smile. It’s then, only then, that you’ll find wonderland”  - Lewis Carroll

On June 18, 2024, PQI Alumni, staff and members of the SSC/NHA steering committee from across the north came together for a day of education and networking in Prince George. The day featured two workshops: Power, Privilege, & Intersectionality in Healthcare Settings and Joy in Work. Participants left with tools to successfully support the needs of patients in situations where there may be an imbalance in power and privilege and brainstormed methods to increase joy in work to encourage the retention of health care professionals.
