Session 1: Equity-mindedness: Identifying and Interrupting Implicit Bias
This foundational workshop will be facilitated utilizing a social justice lens that examines the connectedness between diversity, equity and inclusion. Through an examination of individual, institutional, and systemic influences in relation to social injustice, participants will learn about systemic oppression, that is historically founded in privilege and power. They will learn more about their own socialization and social identities along with the conscious and unconscious prejudices and bias they may hold.
Session 2: Equity-mindedness and Cultural Responsiveness in the Health and Lactation Space Panel
Panelists will discuss their approach to advancing equity in the health and lactation space at the individual, institutional, and systemic levels. They will also discuss the value of being culturally competent and share culturally responsive strategies.
Session 3: Allyship, Anti-Racism, and Cultural Responsiveness
This workshop will deepen participants’ knowledge and understanding of allyship and cultural value diversity. Concepts of cultural competence, cultural humility, cultural sensitivity and cultural awareness will be introduced, explored and made meaning of. Through the development of cultural intelligence, participants will build their capacity to relate and work effectively in culturally diverse situations.

By registering for the live event, you will automatically gain access to the recorded sessions.
As USLCA continues to embark up its, individual and collective, equity journey, we feel it is imperative to not only offer the workshop and its valuable information to the lactation profession, but to also provide it to the BIPOC community at no cost. We feel it is critical to reduce the barriers BIPOC individuals may encounter as a result of their desire to participate in these sessions. We hope this displays our continued commitment to ensure equity is at the core of the organization and the forefront of the lactation field. We recognize this is just a small contribution to the equity work being done by phenomenal and instrumental individuals, and we are committed to continuing and contributing to this work.
