University of California San Francisco Give to UCSF

This workshop has small fee to cover expenses associated with a weekend offering.

Led by:

Odinakachukwu Ehie, MD, and Pramita Kuruvilla, MD

People who identify as underrepresented in medicine (UIM) and women continue to face both overt and unconscious biases that influence their experience in academic medicine and prevent them from achieving positions of leadership. Leaders in academic medicine have a responsibility to build inclusive working and learning environments that embrace people from diverse backgrounds. In addition, they need to develop the skills to be an ally to their UIM and women colleagues and help them navigate paths towards leadership positions.

At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

Recognize the barriers faced by people who identify as UIM and women in achieving leadership positions.
Identify unconscious biases and manage them in self and others.
Recognize and respond to micro aggressions directed at those who identify as UIM and women in order to promote an inclusive work environment.
Develop strategies for allyship to promote inclusive leadership.

During this workshop, participants will:

Explore a six point framework from Sukhera et al for integrating implicit bias training into the health professions
Discover how different types of bias play a role in maintaining this status quo, including overt bias, unconscious bias and institutional bias.
Practice recognizing and responding to (micro)aggressions that undermine UIM and women leaders.
Engage in a discussion about models for allyship to promote institutional change towards inclusive leadership.
