Back 2 Basics: Anti-Racism – How Does it Work?
Being antiracist results from a conscious decision to make frequent, consistent, equitable choices daily. These choices require ongoing self-awareness and self-reflection as we move through life. Join us as we demystify anti-racism and examine our mindsets, behaviors and practices that impede us from being actively anti-racist.
Upcoming Session: Tuesday, August 10, 2021 | Noon – 1 pm
Anti-Racism: A Professional Imperative
What could be more important than the moral imperative of anti-racism? The professional imperative.
Clinical practice and scientific investigation have always been deeply flawed because of the way we see and incorporate race into our daily work. This is not about being politically correct, it’s about avoiding another generation’s worth of bad science and misguided medical care. Join us to discuss the importance of anti-racism as the organizing principle of our professional practice.
