The UW Medicine Office of Healthcare Equity is hosting virtual affinity groups and race-based caucuses for UW Medicine employees to have more formalized, supportive spaces to talk, be heard and grieve here in our work environment.
Race-based caucuses and affinity groups help organizations advance equity, diversity and inclusion goals by providing a formal resource for staff and leaders to acknowledge, discuss and dismantle oppressive systems from within by starting with the difficult conversations.
There will be three separate virtual caucus groups: one for Black colleagues, a second for white colleagues and a third for people of color. Staff who wish to participate are asked to join the group that they identify with. The group will have a facilitator and virtual breakout rooms will be used for discussions. While facilitators will take notes, no one will be identified, and the gatherings will not be recorded.
