The JHM Office of Diversity, Inclusion and Health Equity is offering the following training and resources:
One-hour live, virtual unconscious bias training. This will be required at all Johns Hopkins Health System (JHHS) entities for managers and above; hospital nurse leaders; credentialed providers (such as physician assistants and nurse practitioners); and for school of medicine faculty and trainees (including residents, fellows, medical and graduate students, and research postdocs), as well as those at a manager level or above. We anticipate launching this training in November to allow us time to set up tracking through myLearning and awarding of CME/CEU credits.
Launch of Journeys in Healing Town Hall Series. This will be open to the entire Johns Hopkins Medicine community and will focus on structural racism. This series is in collaboration with Partners for Racial Equity and Dr. Katrina Caldwell, JHU’s vice provost for diversity and inclusion.
This town hall series will consist of three introductory sessions:
- Session 1: Anti-Racism 101, Nov. 6, 11 a.m. to noon
- Session 2: Historical Context: Then and Now, Nov. 19, 2 p.m. to 3 p.m.
- Session 3: Choice Points and Sharing Power: Choosing the Path for Racial Justice, Dec. 10, 2 p.m. to 3 p.m.
Following these introductory sessions, we will hold additional sessions covering aspects of structural racism, such as those in health care, law and government, employment, housing and policing.
Development of an anti-oppression/antiracism curriculum. This will be supported by Partners for Racial Equity and will include topics such as:
- History and Anti-Racism: Then and Now
- Bias and Privilege
- Intersectionality and Dialogue
- Systemic Inequality
- Other “-isms” (Heterosexism, Ableism, Sexism, Immigration/Xenophobia, Ageism, Class Oppression)
We are developing central educational content that will be available to your teams for ongoing inclusion, diversity, antiracism and equity (IDARE) training, so you will not need to develop your own content. As the JHM ODIHE team works to implement these initiatives, we encourage you to:
- Visit our Racial Discussion Resources page
- Review the “Guidelines for Facilitating Listening Sessions” webinar and Q&A
- Start a book or video discussion group. Take a moment to review “Suggested Readings, Documentaries and Movies” on our Racial Discussion Resources page.
