New Forum Webinar, Using Innovative Simulation Strategies to Dismantle Systemic Racism

submitted by gocmen@augsburg.edu

When: August 19, 2021 11:00 am – 12:00 pm CST
Presenters: Samreen Vora, Children’s Minnesota  |  Brittany Dahlen, Children’s Minnesota
Cost: Free

Register at: https://forumworkplaceinclusion.org/webinars/using-innovative-simulation-strategies-to-dismantle-systemic-racism/

Many organizations are flocking to implement implicit bias training and other activities to bring to light the structural racism present in our organizations. Although implicit bias training is the first step in creating awareness, it is important to get to the next step of behavior change. Implementation of bias mitigation strategies can be challenging to achieve. Simulation-Based Training (SBT) can be the bridge between creating awareness and moving to action.
This session will delve into SBT and opportunities for partnering with equity and inclusion training to promote health equity. The webinar will discuss how deliberate practice of both recognition of bias and implementation of strategies to mitigate bias can be integrated into implicit bias training. Real examples of the partnership between SBT and equity and inclusion training will be provided and participants will have an opportunity to begin developing facilitation skills for leading SBT deliberate practice conversations

Learning Outcomes
Describe the simulation strategies applicable to promoting health equity
Integrate implicit bias mitigation strategies into simulations
Apply equity and inclusion facilitation skills to simulation facilitation

Personal Care Assistants Needed

submitted by barrienb@augsburg.edu

Hi! My name is Bella and I am a first year student here at Augsburg studying graphic design. I am currently trying to find personal care assistants to help me in my day to day life here on campus. This would include getting me ready for the day, helping me get set up for class and assisting me around campus. I am currently looking for people who would want to work some hours during this summer and the Fall semester! If you are a pre-med or nursing student, this is a great opportunity to get experience with patient care. Plus, you get to be paid to have fun!

I really enjoy getting coffee, watching Netflix, drawing, and painting. I consider all my assistants as my friends and if you work for me, you are guaranteed a good time! If you are interested, please text me at: 612-345-2855 or email me at barrienb@augsburg.edu. Hope you will join!
