Equity is a core value of Public Health. In a commitment to establish the Herbert Wertheim School of Public Health and Human Longevity Science with equity ingrained in its foundational culture, we are providing a 9-hour training seminar titled "Racial Resilience" and focused on sustaining a School that is anti-racism.

The seminar instructors are Rev. Dr. Christopher Carter and Dr. Seth Schoen, professors at University of San Diego. The objectives of the seminar series are to have participants be able to:

  1. Situate the origins and development of "race thinking" in the Euro-American colonial project.

  2. Understand and define racialization, racism, racial projects, colonialism, white privilege, compassion, self, parts/interior movements.

  3. Cultivate compassionate awareness of one's internal and external worlds and contextualize the role of race within them.

  4. Understand how compassion fosters sustainable anti-racist efforts.

  5. Apply racial resilience methodology to confidently engage in anti-racism work and participate in conversations about racism.

 

Over the next year, all faculty, staff, project scientists, and some trainees will be trained. The insights gained will have a sustained impact on the culture, structure, policies, procedures, and practices of the Herbert Wertheim School of Public Health and Human Longevity Science.
