From Root to Reality: Understanding the Foundations Racial Inequity and Connecting the Dots throughout History to Contemporary Climate
October 5, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Intended Audience: This session is open to all SPH Faculty & Staff members, and will be particularly useful for SPH community members who are looking to increase their knowledge of foundational concepts related to structural racism and anti-racism. Workshop Description: Recent discussions around root causes of social, political and economic inequity have emerged in response to “the perfect storm” of a pandemic, racial unrest, and political divide over the last few years. Often lacking from these conversations is the throughline that runs from this country’s foundation to differences across health and life trajectory at work today.
This session will help participants:
- learn about the historical underpinnings of the harmful power imbalances we see and experience today,
- connect that historic legacy to the field of Public Health and
- begin to consider our own relationship to these power imbalances as faculty & staff in a school of public health.
