Measuring Racial Equity: A Groundwater Approach
March 19 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm$25
Race remains an important indicator of well-being in US society. When other factors that are cited as the probable reasons for health or social problems (e.g., income, education, parent involvement, access to health insurance, etc.) are controlled for in statistical analyses, race remains an important, independent predictor of health, social, education, criminal justice and other outcomes. Groundwater will build your capacity and knowledge of racial inequities and disparities within our society.
This workshop is bring brought back to Athens County through a community partnership of the Athens County Foundation, Athens City Schools, City of Athens, OhioHealth and Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine. This workshop helps participants become clear on how race and racism have been constructed in the US and how ideas about racism live in our unconscious minds and social structures even 50 years after the successes of the Civil Rights movement.
This workshop is important for all people who are committed to eliminating racism. It provides an analysis that helps participants gain clarity about how racism is organized and how to work to disrupt its powerful influence.
