Catalyze Movement: Practical Approaches for Institutional Equity in Your Workplace

No matter what sector you are in, institutional inequities impact your business. Evidence shows that institutional and systemic inequities persistently exist in organizations, creating unfair distributions of power and resources across race, gender, class, and other dimensions of identity. Unfortunately, there are practices, policies, and decision points that are hidden in plain sight in our work and workplaces that contribute to these inequities. Regardless of unintentionality, this unfair distribution of power contributes to unequal social, economic and environmental conditions that contribute to reduced community health overall.

Conscientious leaders–you–are the gatekeepers with the power to name and expose the barriers to health equity. The Catalyze Movement: Practical Approaches for Institutional Equity in Your Workplace workshop will equip you with the tools to effectively expose and eliminate these barriers and contribute to the foundation of community health in Tampa Bay.

During the workshop, you will practice using diversity, equity, and inclusion tools designed to eliminate barriers to equity in the workplace. You will be equipped to:

-Recognize effective strategies to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion
-Apply relevant tools that promote equity and resilience
-Evaluate and improve organizational capacity to support cultural humility and competence

*This workshop is an interactive experience, where in real time, you will broaden your knowledge of cultural humility and competence, while learning to apply practical skills that eliminate workplace inequity.

Join us on May 20, 2021 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. for Catalyze Movement: Practical Approaches for Institutional Equity in Your Workplace hosted by the TBHC Building Capacity Impact Council.

Collectively, we can make big changes, by making small choices that will positively impact our diverse peers in the workplace, strengthen the foundation of community health, and advance health equity in Tampa Bay.
