Northwestern Memorial Hospital presents

A Schwartz Rounds

Responding to Bigotry, Prejudice, and Racism in the Workplace

Healthcare organizations are increasingly diverse in employee and patient populations. Creating an environment of respect is key to providing high quality, culturally sensitive care. The panel will explore strategies for responding to bigoted or racist comments or requests from patients and families to not be cared for by clinicians of a specific race, ethnicity, gender or sexual orientation. They will also invite the audience to consider how to support colleagues when they experience bigotry, prejudice or racism in the workplace, while yet upholding our “patients first” mission.
