Hennepin Healthcare makes its case for more equity, inclusion training

“If we live in fear of what may happen, then we’re already telling the groups that are constantly dealing with issues that the worry of someone who may be offended is more important than my personal safety, well-being and mental health,” Chief Equity Officer Nneka Sederstrom told a crowd during a presentation of the program in February.

“We’re teaching the providers of tomorrow,” Vice President of Health Equity Talee Vang said.  “And because of that, we have this unique position to make a real change, and to make a really, really bold statement.”
