Join Chats for Change sessions – part of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai’s Racism and Bias Initiative – to engage in thoughtful dialogue on issues of race and bias in health care.

Deeper Dive Series | White Supremacy Culture Characteristics: Worship of the Written Word

Why is anything that is documented or published valued more highly than other forms of knowledge and communication? Are policies more important than conventional wisdom? Are written biographies more important than oral histories? Are clinical trials more valuable than patients’ lived experiences? Join us as we explore where this notion comes from, and the harm it does to our efforts to achieve justice and equity.

On the Fence: Reparations

Reparation programs acknowledge and address harms caused by human rights violations such as slavery, genocide, segregation, or systematic denial of fair housing, education, and employment opportunities. Are reparations necessary? Has America made enough racial progress and strides toward rectifying the past? Join us as we explore reparations, what they are, and if they are necessary.
