Last spring and summer we saw a surge in declarations of anti-racism from health and medicine-related institutions. If you’re looking at the calendar, you might notice it’s past time we start asking for receipts.

In thinking about opportunities and areas of resistance re: institutional change, I’ve been diving into reading about diversity efforts in higher education. I am finding these readings helpful documents of how diversity can (or fails) to happen. I am hoping this can inform all of us on how to think harder and in much greater detail on how anti-racism is (or is not) going to happen.
