An Equity in Midwifery Education Webinar

Presenters: Wendy M. Gordon, CPM, LM, MPH and Safiya A. U. McCarter, ND, MSAOM
Incorporating Antiracism Coursework into a Cultural Competency Curriculum

Come explore why:


● Students may not be effective in cultural humility or creating a culturally safe practice until they understand their role in issues of social power and dominant social norms.

● Incorporating an in-depth exploration of the impacts of racism, power, and privilege as social determinants of health is a challenging but necessary component of cultural competency training for all health care practitioners.

● A lengthy primer may be necessary to orient students to racism, power, and privilege in US society and how these impact health and the provider-patient relationship.

● Faculty must be well equipped to address social differences that inevitably arise in the classroom.
