ANTIRACISM IN NURSING EDUCATION AND THE WORKFORCE: LEADING CHANGE

The coronavirus pandemic has exposed the pressing need to examine long-standing policies that are in place in our healthcare and academic systems that perpetuate bias, stigma, discrimination, and inequity. Dismantling systems of oppression requires addressing the policies, structural barriers, and lack of diversity in leadership positions, which all contribute to racism. As the nation reckons with the impact of racism on all facets of life, learn from experts about how future and current nurses can effectively lead the way to make positive change within our communities and develop a diverse workforce.

IN-DEPTH CONCURRENT DIALOGUES

UNSEEN DIVERSITY:
HOW TO ELEVATE INCLUSIVITY AND AFFECT CHANGE

Diversity encompasses all the ways in which people differ, including innate and acquired characteristics. Acquired characteristics are often not seen by others and can lead to marginalization. It is vital to increase diversity within the healthcare, education, and workplace settings but to also actively create inclusive environments that foster cultures of understanding, open dialogue, and belonging. Hear insights from healthcare leaders on how to promote and elevate inclusion within these key spaces so that real change can be achieved.

AN INSTITUTE FOR NURSING LEADERSHIP CRITICAL CONVERSATION ON HEALTH EQUITY AND RACISM

Racism is a public health crisis. From the increased rates of COVID-19 infections and deaths among Black and Latino populations, to the perpetually higher rates of violence and police brutality these communities face, it is clear that there are prevalent, persistent flaws in our nation’s structures that negatively impact determinants of health and outcomes. In this critical conversation, leaders in diversity, equity, and inclusion will discuss the systemic racism that exists within health care and, how it prevents us from achieving true health equity. These leaders will provide insights into how nurses as individuals can take actions to build a better future and support the public through our collective efforts.
