Organizational and systemic strategies to address racism
 
This webinar is the second of a two-part series on the impact of racism on health. The aim of the discussions is to explore approaches to addressing racism, as well as how to improve the health of Indigenous and racialized peoples.
 
Racism, defined as a systemic force that impacts the distribution of power and resources based on socially defined “races,” impacts the health and well-being of Indigenous and racialized peoples.
 
The webinar will explore approaches to addressing racism that occurs at the organizational and systemic levels. Specifically, the webinar will:

  • share examples of anti-racist organizational transformation;
  • discuss anti-racist policy approaches; and
  • highlight the importance measuring systemic racism in public health data systems.
