Grand Rounds: Addressing Microaggressions in Health Care

As part of our department’s efforts around diversity, equity and inclusion, we invited UW Health Vice President of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Shiva Bidar, MA, and UW Health Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Program Coordinator Naomi Tahakashi, MSW, LCSW to present the training “Addressing Microaggressions in Health Care.”

In their presentation, Bidar and Takahashi reviewed UW Health’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion; defined microaggressions and shared examples of how they show up in healthcare; and outlined resources, policies and tools to interrupt microaggressions when we witness or experience them.
