Webinar: “Racing” the social determinants of health and health equity (Part 2 of 2)

This webinar is the second of a two-part series on the impact of racism on health and approaches to addressing racism and improving the health of Indigenous and racialized peoples. Racism, defined as a systemic force that impacts the distribution of power and resources based on socially defined “races,” impacts the health and well-being of Indigenous and racialized peoples.

The webinar will explore approaches to addressing racism that occurs at the organizational and systemic levels. Specifically, the webinar will:

  • share examples of anti-racist organizational transformation;
  • discuss anti-racist policy approaches; and
  • highlight the importance measuring systemic racism in public health data systems.
