AMWA + PJE Present- Being a Better Ally – A Call to Action
February 8 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm EST
Have you ever thought, “I care about creating a more inclusive healthcare workplace, but what can I do?” If so, you’re not alone. Knowing how to be a better ally for underrepresented colleagues is unfamiliar territory for many of us.
In this webinar with Pringl Miller MD, Kali Cyrus MD MPH, and Karen Catlin (author of Belonging in Healthcare: The Better Allies Approach to Creating More Inclusive Workplaces), it will be a “no holds barred” conversation about the challenges people from underrepresented groups face in healthcare workplaces and how to take action as an ally.
Kali Cyrus MD MPH is a physician-advocate with a clinical expertise in treating women across the spectrum, individuals with multiple marginalized identities, and those generally considered “other.” She is also an advocate in the tech space, as a co-founder/Chief of Strategy for Gemma, a women’s mental health platform, politically as a Board member of the 501c3 organization Committee to Protect Healthcare, and in the media as featured on Showtime, CNN, MSNBC and other outlets.
After spending 25 years building software products and serving as a vice president of engineering at Macromedia and Adobe, Karen Catlin witnessed a sharp decline in the number of women working in tech. Frustrated but galvanized, she knew it was time to switch gears. Today, Karen is a highly acclaimed author and speaker on inclusive workplaces. She is the author of four books: Better Allies: Everyday Actions to Create Inclusive, Engaging Workplaces, Belonging in Healthcare, The Better Allies Approach to Hiring, and Present! A Techie’s Guide to Public Speaking.
