About The Event
September 12 - October 4, 2023 - Livestream (Virtual) - CT
This course introduces healthcare and biomedical leaders to anti-racist strategies, resources, and tools to achieve racial equity at both levels of organizational change and individual leadership practices. Participants engage in interactive exercises to evaluate their own biases and examine how they fit into the larger cultural experience in the United States. Through engaging multiple partners, participating in a series of small and large group discussions and activities, and watching and reflecting on videos, participants are empowered to explore the layers of assumptions, stereotypes, and biases, and systemic and institutionalized ideologies that lead to biased attitudes and discriminatory behavior. Participants partake in institutional and organizational problem-solving scenarios to build antiracism and racial equity competencies. This course is an essential starting point for anyone seeking to expand their knowledge on the complexities of race, gender, and class.
