Description: Achieving racial equity requires society’s systems and markets to perform equally well for different racial and ethnic groups. Unfortunately, the data for most of our systems and markets do not currently show equity or parity for our most disenfranchised racial and ethnic groups. This training will explore how institutional or customary practices, whether intentional or unintentional, are set up to further perpetuate racial health inequities. Participants will get a chance to explore how this manifests in the community context and ways in which they can work actively against perpetuating these inequitable systems

Audience: Individuals or teams working towards community health who may be new to discussing power and racial dynamics in the context of their community work.

Trainers: Mo Barbosa, (HRiA) and Lori Lobenstine, (ds4si) 

Learning Objectives: Participants completing this webinar will be able to

  1. Define racial equity and how it plays out the community context.
  2. Identify ways in which daily and societal practices influence racial equity dynamics in community work.
  3. Identify at least two strategies for leveraging their power positively in their community work.

This training meets the following DPH guidelines:
• Consistency with MA DPH’s goals and priorities
