REMEMBERING, UNDERSTANDING, ANALYZING
RACISM AND UNCONSCIOUS BIAS AS A
SERIOUS HEALTH ISSUE
Our first Zoominar on unconscious bias was our introduction, as we remembered our experiences of race. Our second Zoominar will be a deeper dive into understanding racism and analyzing its relationship to unconscious bias.

The King Center says Dr. King’s Beloved Community represents a global vision in which all people can share in the wealth of the earth. In the Beloved Community poverty, hunger, homelessness, and health inequities will not be accepted. Personal unconscious bias and systemic racism and all forms of discrimination will be replaced by an all-inclusive spirit of sisterhood and brotherhood.
- What does that mean for HMA? Who are we? What is our purpose? How can our lives and our work, individually and organizationally, help create the Beloved Community?
- What necessitates discussing racism as a health issue?
- What experience can you share when race mattered in health ministry?
Join us for a conversation on who we are as HMA and what we as a health care ministry can do to support the vision of Becoming the Beloved Community.
