Recently published reports have helped detail inequities that disproportionately impact communities of color and other traditionally marginalized populations. While documentation of inequities is critical to addressing these challenges, how we respond to these realities is even more important.

In this interactive discussion, key leaders trying to address inequities will share highlights from recent reports and engage the audience in discussion on what actions need to take place. In this session, participants will:

  • Learn about findings from key reports
  • Dialogue about ways to respond to the reports
  • Consider actions we can all take
  • Learn more about ongoing activities related to each report
