Download our FREE tool for Navigating Patient Bias 

In clinical team settings, healthcare professionals often find themselves bystanders or targets when patients direct bias or microaggressions towards their colleagues, learners, or themselves.
Women and people of color are disproportionately targets of these incidents, and the changing demographics of medical students lead to more instances of bias and microaggressions in training environments. 
Healthcare professionals and leaders can use this guide to interrupt and prevent bias and harm from patients.

Confront the History of Resistance to Racial Equity

Understanding the history of resistance to racial equity in the United States is crucial in our pursuit of justice and equity. This history, marked by the undermining of Reconstruction, violent suppression of freedom and voting rights, and the era of Jim Crow laws and lynchings, has deeply impacted our society.

From discriminatory Supreme Court rulings to contemporary efforts obstructing diversity and inclusion initiatives, this legacy persists today. Recognizing this connection empowers us to confront present-day challenges and safeguard the progress made towards equality. By acknowledging this history, we arm ourselves against forces seeking to hinder diversity and inclusion advancements, ensuring a more equitable future for all.

Fortify your DEIA efforts by anticipating pushback

  • Learning from past Supreme Court rulings that have perpetuated injustice, allows you to navigate potential legal and ethical challenges more effectively.
  • By confronting and addressing this silence, organizations can foster a culture of accountability and allyship, creating space for meaningful dialogue and action towards equity.
  • This resource equips you with the knowledge to navigate and counter these challenges, ensuring that your DEIA efforts remain resilient and effective.
