CoE Office Hours: Supporting Leadership Development Among BIPOC Staff

Due to the far-reaching effects of structural racism, staff who identify as Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) and other marginalized groups based on class, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, nationality and age face several obstacles in career advancement and leadership development opportunities. As organizations prioritize improving health equity, it is imperative to consider how internal policies, practices and organizational cultures support or hinder BIPOC communities and other identities.

Leaders of health care organizations are well-positioned to remove barriers through staff empowerment strategies, providing space for staff to find and use their voice and investment in professional development.

Please join us for our Office Hour session on Monday, May 24 from 2 – 3 p.m. ET to explore these topics.
