Add to calendar

UCSF Healthcare Advocates for Social Justice invite you to join us on Tuesday, August 17th at 3:00 PM for a discussion called “Examining Racism and the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Community” via Zoom. The talk will feature Hideko Akashi, Professional Facilitator and Founder of Liberation Consulting who speaks on liberation, race/racism, privilege, gender/sexism, sexual orientation, intersectionality, socialization, internalization and systemic cycles of oppression.

With over 20 years of experience in the educational sector, Hideko Akashi has challenged individuals and institutions to think critically about issues of diversity, privilege, social justice, inclusion, and equity. Starting with her own self-reflective journey, Hideko draws upon her own experience acknowledging her membership in privileged groups as well as her multiple targeted identities to guide individuals into their own self-exploration. She believes in self and social transformation, and that institutions can also create positive shifts in organizational culture to help cultivate the environment of truly equitable and inclusive spaces.

You can register for the talk here and learn more about Hideko and Liberation Consulting here.  This lecture is free to attend but donations to AAPI Women Lead are strongly encouraged.

This event was planned by a diverse group of UCSF staff who organized in response to the ongoing racial injustices. The goal of the UCSF Healthcare Advocates for Social Justice monthly speaker series is to promote critical thinking and action around intersectional structures of power, privilege, and racial oppression in clinical care, education, and beyond. We will continue to highlight the efforts of community antiracism activists.
