Diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts are nothing without first creating safe spaces for minority experiences to be shared. This fosters an environment where conversations begin, stay honest, and cultivate understanding. An increasingly diverse medical workforce has 2 functions: more culturally competent providers who can adequately care for minority patients and creation of academic medicine pipelines to serve current and future (underrepresented in Medicine) URM physicians. Health care providers must ask themselves how to engage in personal and professional spaces as a deliberate antiracist. Join this webinar to discover the more proactive steps to become culturally sensitive and advocate for minority colleagues or friends, and, even more so, protect minority patients?
