May 17, 2022 | 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM

Structural racism refers to the public and private policies, institutional practices, norms and cultural representations that inherently procure unequal freedom, opportunity, value, resources, advantage, restrictions, constraints, or disadvantage to individuals and populations according to their race/ethnicity both across the life course and between generations. The workshop is designed to identify and discuss the sources and mechanisms through which structural racism operates. Invited experts will not only provide insights into known sources of structural racism and models of health equity, but also go beyond these to discuss novel sources and approaches.
