Gender Identity and Youth

  • MARESA 321 E. Ohio Marquette, MI 49855 United States (map)

Course Description:

This one-day Health Equity Workshop is designed to help health professionals and community members alike develop the common language necessary to explore how discrimination and social identities impact health outcomes. It will address how racism, sexism, ableism, and other oppression lead to negative health outcomes, and how discrimination enters the body to damage life and health. In this workshop, participants will examine the power dynamics that create and maintain racial, gender, and other disparities, participate in active learning exercises, participate in thoughtful and guided conversations, and assess the Multicultural Diversity of health institutions in Kalamazoo. The workshop is conducted in an atmosphere of mutual respect, caring and safety, and is not based on confrontation, guilt and judgment.
