University of California San Francisco Give to UCSF

Leaders in academic medicine have a responsibility to build inclusive working environments that embrace people from diverse backgrounds. Women and underrepresented minorities in medicine continue to face both overt and unconscious biases that prevent them from achieving positions of leadership. Leaders in academic medicine must be able to identify and support women and people from backgrounds underrepresented in medicine (UIM) as future leaders.

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

  • Recognize the barriers faced by women and underrepresented minorities in medicine (UIM) in achieving leadership positions.
  • Identify unconscious biases and manage them in self and others.
  • Recognize and respond to microaggressions toward women and UIM in order to promote an inclusive work environment.
  • Develop strategies for allyship to promote inclusive leadership.

During this workshop, participants will:

  • Explore a recently published 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 women and UIM leaders.
  • Engage in a discussion about models for allyship to promote institutional change towards inclusive leadership.
