Emerge Workshop: Managing Difficult Conversations on Bias and Equity

As we have navigated a global pandemic for the past two years, Latinos have seen first hand the role that health equity plays in education equity and economic opportunity. The lack of access to healthcare, access to vaccines and access to a safe working environment creates a situation where someone without access to proper healthcare has to decide between putting themselves in high-risk situations to get an education or economic opportunities, or they try to protect their health at the potential cost of education or economic opportunity. Our panel of experts discuss improving a system to provide equitable access to healthcare, economic opportunities, and education for Latinos.
