Beyond Diversity, Culture, and Inclusion
Rainbow Research is currently contracted by Minnesota Department of Health Center for Health Equity to provide technical assistance and capacity building to Eliminating Health Disparities Initiative grantees. Rainbow Research kicked off the capacity building training with “Beyond Diversity, Culture, and Inclusion”. Developed and lead by Vidhya Shanker, this session was intended for those whose experience and understanding of inequity and whose hunger for racial and economic justice has not been sated by discourses of diversity, culture, and inclusion. The sessions explored three alternative frameworks for understanding and addressing persistent disparities, disproportionalities, and systemic inequity. Since several grantees are located in rural areas outside of Minneapolis, and would not be able to attend in person, we recorded the training and have posted it publicly.
