Episode 44: Dionne Sinclair on being the Black role model she wished she had
Dionne Sinclair is VP Clinical Operations and the Chief Nurse at CAMH, Canada's largest mental health teaching hospital. Her biggest turning point happened when she was laid off from her job as a nurse. At the time, she had two young kids and decided to move back in with her parents so she could go to university. She already had a diploma from Fanshawe College and getting her degree would open doors for her in healthcare leadership.
In this episode, Dionne shares her story of moving around the province to gain the career experience that would eventually lead to the position she has now. She also talks about how the murder of George Floyd led to her working on improving diversity, equity and inclusion in healthcare.
This interview was recorded at a live event sponsored by Fanshawe College. Dionne and I are both Fanshawe alum and Turning Point is thrilled to have the college as a partner this season.
