Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and UnityMedicine’s history of racism continues to shape the experiences of patients and providers today, manifesting itself through the lack of workforce representation and in patient engagement and satisfaction surveys where patients continue to report better care when they see providers who share their racial and ethnic identities. Many in the healthcare industry, including those educating future workers, are working hard to dismantle the racism pervading our field. To eliminate racism in medicine, we must identify it, call problems out, call people in, and invest in effective strategies that simultaneously promote health equity and workforce inclusion and belonging. In this webinar, four panelists will discuss their perspectives on racism in medicine, how it shapes provider and patient experiences, and strategies to build a more anti-racist, equitable, and inclusive healthcare system.
