Everyday Acts of Bias and Bravery

Thursday, September 14, 2017

Joint Commission on the Status of Women Panel: Everyday Acts of Bias and Bravery

We will focus on the acts of overt and unconscious bias that we encounter as we go through our work day (e.g., in clinical settings from patients, or with our colleagues and superiors) and biases encountered as we advance in our careers.  We will also discuss strategies in what we can do to support each other when we observe biases happening to our colleagues. 

Moderator: Jessica Halem, LGBT Program Director, Diversity Inclusion and Community Partnership, Harvard Medical School. Panelists: Hibo Abdi, Faculty Promotions Coordinator, Office for Faculty Affairs, Harvard Medical School, Cheri Ann Blauwet, MD, Assistant Professor of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Brigham and Women's Hospital and Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital and Nawal M.
