Diversity and Inclusion

Racial Equity + Justice Forum

The Duke Palliative Care Racial Equity + Justice Forum is a series of weekly educational sessions designed to raise awareness of race-based inequities and injustices and to promote critical thinking about the way that we show up for our patients, their loved ones, and each other.  The series focuses on providing historical context and exploration of present-day implications of that history to equip staff with an understanding of how complex and ingrained racism, particularly anti-Blackness, is in our society and how it manifests.  The forum is a dynamic resource that can and will change to meet the needs of participants as we work together as a department to promote anti-racism and become greater advocates for our patients and one another.
