Towards Health Equity and Justice: Navigating the Emotional Toll from the Heavy Lift
January 16, 2024 | Panelists: Kathryn Fraser, PhD; Jeffrey Ring, PhD; and support from Kento Sonoda, MD, FASAM, AAHIVS
"Inclusion is not bringing people into what already exists, it is making a new space, a better space for everyone."
Many of us strive for an inclusive space, some of us actively and others in an aspirational sense. The joys of DEI work come from seeing the formation of healthy connections that deepen our collective need for togetherness. These advances in creating psychological safety come with an emotional toll that can erode the very connections this work fosters. Kathryn Fraser, PhD and Jeff Ring, PhD are two psychologists who have partnered, sparred, and emerged wiser as a result of their decades long work together in behavioral science and DEI. Please join them as they explore strategies to embrace and manage the emotional toll, soul draining experiences, and joyful rewards of DEI work. Participants will be invited to engage in their own self-exploration and draw from group wisdom to develop ways to manage the distress they experience while advancing their own goals for diversity and inclusion.
Following completion of the webinar, participants will be able to:
- Describe some of the emotional burdens of DEI work
- Share personal reflections on how DEI work affects them physically, emotionally, and spiritually
- List strategies to mitigate the toll of DEI work and replenish their desire to continue their efforts

Upon completion of this session, participants should be able to:
- Apply imposter phenomenon evidence to medical student mentorship

- Formulate a plan to create a safe learning environment at your institution that stifles imposter phenomenon and produces confident students
