This session will introduce anti-racism and explore common challenges dietitians face when coming into anti-racism work. The session will create a safe, supportive space where participants feel comfortable asking questions, feel safe to engage in the content, and practice sitting with their thoughts and emotions.
Both presenters will bring their lived experience, knowledge, and education to support the following learning outcomes:
- Define and discuss common terminology around racism and anti-racism and how they appear in systems such as healthcare
- Engage in critical self-reflection and dialogue to understand our role within systems
- Identify personal and professional development goals in anti-racism work
- Examine personal beliefs, emotions, and tensions that arise within anti-racism discussions
- Recognize privilege and understand how it can be used to center marginalized voices
