Longstanding health inequities have been magnified during the COVID-19 pandemic and syndemic. Increasing diversity, in all areas including but not limited to race, socioeconomic status, gender, sexuality, or physical abilities, of the health workforce has been demonstrated to improve health outcomes and is one component of addressing systemic oppression and other barriers within the healthcare system. This workshop will explore the manifestations of bias, both personal, interpersonal and structural, and how they may influence health professional applicant selection policies, processes and decisions.
The workshop will consist of a dialogue on diversity, equity and inclusion in health professional education and the health workforce followed by a brief review of bias and implicit bias training (IBT). Workshop participants will then complete an IBT exercise and debrief as a large group. A discussion about implicit bias and its impact on the applicant selection process and policies will occur, with participants collaboratively identifying opportunities to mitigate bias within their own contexts.
- Identify policies and processes related to applicant selection that may disadvantage applicants
- Identify opportunities to mitigate bias and improve selection processes and policies in own contexts
Facilitators: Jackie Gruber / Amanda Condon / Sara Goulet / Lisa Monkman
