Batalden Convocation: Interfaith Conversations on Racial Justice

submitted by maruggi@augsburg.edu

The murder of George Floyd and the ensuing protests calling for racial justice have reverberated throughout Minnesota, around the country, and the world. How have these events disturbed and reoriented the understanding of racial justice? What does this reckoning mean for people who espouse a religious or spiritual worldview? How does this moment provide an opportunity to reaffirm, rearticulate, or revise how religious and spiritual traditions work towards racial justice?

The Batalden Seminar in Applied Ethics on February 8th, 11:00-12:00 will address these questions. It will highlight a video series of practitioners from differing religious, spiritual, and secular perspectives in conversation on the issue of racial justice interspersed with a panel discussion with the video participants and student respondents.

To register for this virtual event, go to https://augsburg.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_MHFRNwfRTCa-l5O5hPqNXw

New — Forum Webinar, Advancing Health Equity for Black Women Through Sponsorship

submitted by gocmen@augsburg.edu

When: February 17, 2022 11:00 am – 12:00 pm CST
Level: Introductory
Track: Healthcare
Presenter: Faith Eatman, UChicago Medicine
Cost: Free

Register at: https://forumworkplaceinclusion.org/webinars/advancing-health-equity-for-black-women-through-sponsorship/

Although there have been gains in diversity across various healthcare sectors, leadership positions continue to be disproportionately held by White men. Understanding the impact that social determinants of health like racism and discrimination have on healthcare outcomes for Black women, it is bad business for them to be underrepresented at the decision and policy-making levels in healthcare. How do we solve this pervasive problem?
Join us as we share how the University of Chicago Medical Center (UCM) is leveraging a formal sponsorship program focused on increasing the representation of Black women at the senior leadership level. Also, participants will learn how UCM is using a formal sponsorship program – including critical conversations at the executive leadership level about the lived experience of Black women – to accelerate workplace culture transformation and advance healthcare equity. We will also explore how this may be applied in other organizations.

Learning Outcomes
Learn how advancing more Black women to leadership roles in healthcare impacts health equity
Recognize sponsorship as an accelerator for career advancement and workplace culture transformation
Gain strategies for creating formal sponsorship programs for Black Women in your organization
