Test Yourself

The following web resources were created to help all persons become more aware of their internal biases. Consider visiting these links, and take some of the tests, to better help you understand your own implicit biases.

 

 

Diversity is the presence of differences that may include race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity, nationality, socioeconomic status, language, (dis)ability, age, religious commitment, or political perspective.  Populations that have been-and remain- underrepresented among practitioners in the field and marginalized in the broader society.

Equity is promoting justice, impartiality and fairness within the procedures, processes, and distribution of resources by institutions or systems.  Tackling equity issues requires an understanding of the root causes of outcome disparities within our society.

Inclusion is an outcome to ensure those that are diverse actually feel and/or are welcomed.  Inclusion outcomes are met when you, your institution, and your program are truly inviting to all.  To the degree to which diverse individuals are able to participate fully in the decision-making processes and development opportunities within an organization or group.

 

Transgender Webinar Series

Please join the Network of the National Library of Medicine Pacific Southwest at the UCLA Biomedical Library and Southeastern Atlantic Region at the University of Maryland-Baltimore for our Transgender Health webinar series. With approximately 1 million adults in the U.S. identifying as Transgender and/or Gender Non-Binary (TGNB), this population experiences violence, inequities, biases, and discrimination on many levels. Less than one percent of physicians and 0.7 percent of medical students identify as TGNB, underscoring the need for quality, affirmative healthcare. These three webinars focus on the social determinants of health that create the backbone of health disparities and the resiliency this community holds.

 

Aryah Lester (she/her), author, speaker and educator, is a black woman of transgender experience committed to advocacy and health for transgender communities. Dr. Cheryl Holder (she/her), Fellow in the American College of Physicians, has dedicated her medical career to serving underserved populations, especially Transgender Women.
