Healthcare Providers have been at the forefront of facilitating challenging conversations and cultivating spaces of support, information dissemination, and skill-sharing. This training focuses on racial equity, highlighting intersectionality and reproductive justice and the need for us to examine our own power and privilege within the systems we work in. If our sexuality education leaves out People of Color, Black and Brown folks in particular, is it truly comprehensive? If our clients/patients/participants feel invisible and/or shamed, are we providing "quality" health care? Are our agencies "diverse, equitable, and inclusive" if our staff interactions rooted in stereotypes and misinformation? Cindy Lee will address these questions and more as we discuss action steps on what "doing the work" can look like.
Participants will be able to:
- Explain racial equity and its relationship to sexual and reproductive health
- Describe at least two (2) instances where privilege and oppression are present in their work
