Hosted by the Pennsylvania Care Partnership (PCP), this webinar explores unconscious bias and racial microaggressions within the PCP, allyship, and accompliceship. Prior to the webinar, a climate survey was implemented to identify the experiences of PCP members as they navigate bias and microaggressions. An artist from Ink Factory produced a beautiful infographic from the discussion. 

Hosted by the Black AIDS Institute, this panel discussion explored the role factors driving disparities in COVID-19 rates. Panelists included: Dr. Sharon GE Washington, Tito Jackson, Derrick Wilson & Dr. Bisola Ojikutu, moderated by Raniyah Copeland.
