Session 1: October 9, 2020
This series of 5 virtual workshop sessions will provide a year-long exploration of issues related to diversity, inclusion and equity for the Department of Psychiatry at Brigham and Women's Hospital. VISIONS consultants will introduce a framework for understanding how race and gender microaggressions in clinical and department interactions have the potential to maintain structural inequalities. Sessions will offer guidelines for creating safety and candor in conversations across lines of difference, invite participants to articulate the diversity, inclusion and equity issues they hope to address throughout the year, and explore how the Modern “Isms” framework can be helpful in addressing subtle - often unintentional - expressions of discrimination and their impacts.
This activity is intended for all members of the department of Psychiatry, including clinicians who are psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, nurse practitioners, nurses and medical assistants as well as all administrative and administrative leadership staff.
Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:
- List and define types of micro-aggressions and provide examples of these in day-to-day work within in a medical institution
- Summarize a framework for understanding how race and gender micro-aggressions in clinical and department interactions have the potential to maintain structural inequalities
- Practice creating safety and candor in conversations across lines of difference
- List the diversity, inclusion and equity issues and goals desired to attain throughout the year
- Apply evidenced-based tools to address subtle—and often unintentional---expressions of discrimination and their impact
