ABPD Workshop on Racial Equity, December 4, 2020, 1:00-5:00 PM, EST

Half-day Workshop on Racial Justice (Part I)

Join us for a workshop presented by the Racial Equity Institute, followed by an opportunity to discuss and debrief. This program is intended to provide directors with resources, strategies, and examples of addressing the issues. REI facilitators will use stories and data in their lively and participatory three-hour presentation to describe and illuminate how racism is fundamentally structural in nature. REI uses characteristics of modern-day racial inequity to analyse the present-day characteristics of racism and give participants tools to bring to their lives and work. Following the presentation, participants will discuss and begin to explore the ways these insights can be applied to the field of bioethics.  This workshop will be followed in the Spring by a second workshop involving a deep dive into the field of bioethics and its history. The goal will be to examine ways to understand and improve on its racial inclusion and representation.

This workshop is free for ABPD members. Each member may substitute a single designated attendee.  The registration deadline is November 27!
