Chats for Change | National Edition
Following this spring’s Subway Summit Webinar Series session titled, Racism: American Medicine’s Fatal Flaw, we created Chats for Change sessions that were available to all in the medical education and health care communities—like the ones listed below.
We invite you to share these sessions widely with your colleagues to join us in these national conversations on racism, privilege, and equity.
Colorblindness: “I don’t see color; I just see people.”
What is at stake when a medical school and individuals deny, or are oblivious to, the impact of race, racism, and racial inequality?
Wednesday, December 9 | 12-1 pm EST | Join us on Zoom.
Are you at risk of confirming, as a self-characteristic, a negative stereotype about your racial or ethnic identity group? Do you unconsciously set up conditions that reinforce and perpetuate negative stereotypes? Join us as we reflect on and engage in a dialogue about strategies that reduce stereotype threat.
Wednesday, January 20 | 12-1 pm EST | Join us on Zoom.
Privilege and Oppression: Two Sides of the Same Coin
Systematic targeting and marginalization doesn’t happen randomly or by chance. Privilege is doled out according to a fixed, pre-determined system, one which by definition does damage to other people. In thinking about the “two faces” of privilege and oppression, how have you seen power, privilege and oppression operate in your medical school?
Wednesday, February 17 | 12-1 pm EST | Join us on Zoom.
Moving from Awareness to Action
To create change, we must shift from awareness to action. How can we reimagine the future state and actively work towards dismantling racism in medicine.
Wednesday, March 17 | 12-1 pm EST | Join us on Zoom.
