Event Details

Even when intention is not malicious, bias can have a profound negative effect on the well-being of our colleagues and the people we serve in public health practice.

The January session of Hot Topics in Practice will share how organizations can help address racial bias using the “Racial Justice Competency Model for Public Health Professionals” that will be available from the Public Health Training Centers (PHTC).

This one-hour webinar will support public health professionals in advocating for and implementing the Racial Justice Competency Model, while showing how creating a sense of belonging can be central in your efforts. This presentation is intended to help you understand the Racial Justice Competency Model, how it came to be, future plans for the model, and how your organization can eventually put it into practice to better serve your organization, partners, and communities.

Addressing racial bias and creating a sense of belonging must be intentional and woven into everyday practicesRegister today to learn how.
