With the presence of #MeToo, Time’s Up Healthcare, and diversity and inclusion efforts broadly at member institutions, leaders in academic medicine are increasingly aware of the need to create safe and inclusive environments. Recent studies have highlighted the prevalence and profound impact of sexual and gender harassment. Institutional leaders are looking for best practices to create safe environments that go beyond simply legal compliance. This webinar, featuring our Acting Director, Dr. John Cullen, explored the more nuanced aspects of creating safe and inclusive environments including gender harassment, understanding the prevalence and impact of intimate partner violence (IPV), and strategies to promote inclusion in the scientific environment.

Rochester, New York, has among the nation’s highest rates of racially-based poverty. People and institutions have difficulty acknowledging the role wage inequities play in poverty and racial inequities, created by years of structural and institutional racism embedded in a history of deliberately engineered privilege, stereotypes, and bias. Bruce E. Popper, Vice-President (retired), 1199SEIU United Healthcare Workers East, shared his perspective on the history of structural racism and wage inequities in Rochester and our history.
