Workshop Description:

Diversity, equity, and inclusion are often viewed only through the narrow lens of overt, outrageous acts. Developingculturalcompetencewithinhealthcareiscriticaltogobeyonddiscriminationtoexamininghowsocialandeconomic forces impact the structure of healthcare and its delivery for the individual. The health inequities laid bare by the COVID-19 pandemic compelled health professionals to learn how to best engage in, sustain, and deepen conversations on diversity, equity, and inclusion (Muldoon, 2022). Cultural competency trainings incorporate awareness and structural education for healthcare providers and healthcare systems to recognize how symptom expression, clinical problems, diseases,attitudes,anddeliveryofcareareinfluencedbysocialdeterminantsofhealth(Bishopetal.,2022).This specific training will highlight unconscious bias and microaggressions to assist participants to create healthcare environments that embrace diversity and different perspectives. 

The goal of this training is to inspire program participants to be active change agents within their industry. This Cultural Competency workshop will assist healthcare professionals positively impact employee engagement, promote team collaboration, and improve the patient care experience. Healthcare practitioners will be able to use the resources in this workshop to evaluate their organizational culture, inform their practices, and to create an inclusive environment where everyone feels respected, valued, and welcomed. This training will emphasize unconscious biases and the impact of microaggressions. This anti-bias approach encourages participants to challenge racism, sexism, and discriminations whole learning how to be agents of social change. Our training will emphasize the critical areas: self-awareness; identify racism, sexism, and discriminations within healthcare institutions and practices; and evaluate diverse perspectives to become more culturally competent and empathetic.
