As evidenced by the continued tragic police shootings of unarmed Black people and the disparate COVID outcomes for Black and Latinx people in the US, systemic racism is alive and well in the United States, and the Healthcare industry is not immune. In fact, its history, steeped in racism, continues to be seen and felt by patients and colleagues alike on a daily basis. Rather than thinking of racism as a personal flaw or belief system, it is important and helpful to see the ways that racism permeates the systems and institutions that form the foundation of our society, including the healthcare system.
In this webinar, anti-racism educators Dr. Maiysha Clairborne and Dr. Jill Wener will discuss the systemic nature of racism, what it means to be an anti-racist, and how we all must take personal responsibility to examine how we unconsciously perpetuate systemic racism, so that real and lasting change can occur.
This webinar is co-hosted by PBGH and the Pittsburgh Technology Council and is open its members.
