Don’t miss Toward One Wisconsin bonus event:
How do we advance racial and health equity?
Wisconsin public health leaders declared “Racism a Public Health Crisis” and a statewide priority in 2017. Since then, almost 500 individuals and 100 organizations have signed on to take the pledge declaring racism a public health crisis.
In light of the recent reminders that racial violence persists in our country, including the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, and most recently the shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, urgency remains around calls to action for sweeping changes to end systemic racism.
The MATCH (Mobilizing Action Toward Community Health) group of the UW-Madison Population Health Institute is excited to partner with the Wisconsin Institute for Public Policy and Service on a special Toward One Wisconsin preconference virtual program:
Racism is a Public Health Crisis
And What are We Going to Do About it?
Wed. Nov. 11
Total Virtual Event
$25 (Scholarships available)
This program will kick off the all virtual Toward One Wisconsin (T1W) inclusivity conference on Nov. 12-13. Toward One Wisconsin seeks to build communities of equity and opportunity by prioritizing the work of diversity, equity and inclusion throughout Wisconsin, as well as supporting the creation of a statewide network of individual leaders, nonprofits and employers determined to empower and employ a diverse workforce.
Join us for a preconference day of reflection, connection and action! Participants will be asked how we can translate the pledge on racism into concrete changes through three activities on November 11:
1. Individual reflection and action on racism
2. Organizational reflection and action on racism
3. Systemic policy level reflection and action on racism
Plan to feel inspired, motivated and challenged to move racial equity within your spheres of influence.
