Call People What They Want to Be Called: Racial/Ethnic Labeling & Identity in Healthcare
November 7 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Explore how one’s sense of identity affects emotional/behavioral health of Black and Brown people through an interactive TED Talk-like presentation, audience activities, and conversations with local health-focused organizations. Food will be served.
This multi-faceted event invites the public to explore the importance of conscious identity labeling in healthcare situations. Through a short TED Talk-like presentation, an interactive identity-focused session on discovering behavioral triggers, and guided conversations with healthcare organization representatives focused on respectfully engaging Black and Brown community members, attendees will grow in their understanding of why and how identity matters for people of color in healthcare situations. The goal of this event is for Black and Brown people who attend to have more confidence and support in verbalizing their choices of racial/ethnic identification labels, and for white people to have better information and answers to questions they are hesitant to ask out loud. Food reflecting the racial/ethnic cultures of the International Marketplace will be served.
A partnership between the Komen Tissue Bank, Pink-4-Ever Ending Disparities and Men of Pink, Indiana Donor Network, and Global Village Welcome Center.
Walk-ins welcome, but due to food being served, registration by Nov. 4 is strongly encouraged.
