Racism, intolerance and unconscious bias and how we can address it
For my (Dr. Verna Yiu's) weekly vlog, I gather a panel to discuss racism, intolerance and unconscious bias — not just elsewhere but here in Alberta and within the healthcare system. My guests — Marty Landrie, Executive Director of the Indigenous Health Strategic Clinical Network; Marni Panas, Program Director for AHS Diversity and Inclusion; and Karen Chinaleong-Brooks, Senior Patient Engagement Officer — talk about their personal experiences with discrimination, their thoughts on how to be an ally, and resources available to AHS staff and physicians to help them identify behaviours that are hurtful to others. One of my guests turns the table and asks me a question, too. At 19 minutes, this is a slightly longer instalment of my vlog but the conversations we have are well worth your time.
