Presentation Description: Studies have identified implicit bias and lack of culturally appropriate care as a contributor to maternal health disparities among marginalized and minority communities. Mitigating implicit bias among providers has been identified as a strategy to improve client/patient-provider communication and service/treatment decisions, contributing to improved quality of care and outcomes. Participants will have the opportunity to broaden their awareness of their personal cultural script and implicit biases (subtle, unconscious assumptions about others). Participants will also be equipped with tools to engage with pregnant, birthing and postpartum clients with increased cultural sensitivity and humility.
