Data-driven IDEAA
Strategies and Education

Turning results into action using the 3-Phase IDEAA Strategy

The data collected from the IDEAA survey have been delivered in divisional reports to People and Culture Consultants. Each report will contain scores in the 5 IDEAA Dimensions: Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, Accessibility and Antiracism. The “scorecard” reflects the Likert rating from WorkTango which measures sentiment from most to least favourable, and prescribes IDEAA action steps to educate, uplift and enhance IDEAA-Competency across UHN. 

While it is the ultimate responsibility of leaders to interpret and analyze the results, your People and Culture consultant will be available to guide you through the process.

For more information about the survey results, speak to your People and Culture Consultant.

3-Phase IDEAA Strategy

Red Phase

August 2023 – May 2024

The red phase aims to fulfill the need for foundational knowledge and information about diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Action steps for this phase includes:

  • Learning series that can be completed at your own pace
  • Short, accessible videos about the basics of accessibility, anti-racism, colonialism, and discrimination
  • Introducing inclusive language and understanding why words matter
  • Demystifying negative stereotypes about equity-seeking communities
  • Addressing and dismantling internal biases
  • Addressing global forms of racism such as Anti-Asian, Anti-Blackness, Anti-Indigenous, Islamophobia
  • Individual coaching available for TeamUHN requiring support in grasping IDEAA principles

The survey results provide insight into the TeamUHN experience(s) that may be hard to receive and will be a valuable tool for improvement and understanding. We encourage all leaders to take time to absorb and process the feedback, ask questions and prepare to discuss with their P&C Consultant.
