Q1: Nov 2021-Jan 2022

The State of BIPOC Health in New England

The COVID-19 pandemic revealed deep-seated inequities in health care for

communities of color and amplified social and economic factors that contribute to poor health outcomes. Given the existing impediments to care for underserved populations due to social determinants of health, what can we do collectively to understand and combat racism as a public health and human rights crisis?

Q2: Feb 2022-Apr 2022

Organizational Impact of Implicit Bias

The potential to work on programs that promote equity and social justice is what draws many of us to the field. But biases based on race, gender, and other factors are still a real problem in the education, health care, government, and nonprofit sectors—and are often present in the form of implicit bias. Join us for a series of discussions around what individuals and organizations can do to counter implicit bias.

Integrating Equity into Everyday Operations

For an agency or organization to reach its full potential, it needs to have many different voices at the table. Integrating equity into everyday operations requires transformative leadership and staff buy-in around the intentional adoption of behaviors, practices, and policies that lean into the importance of creating a culture of inclusion aligned with the broader equity issues faced by the communities you serve.
