In parallel with affinity groups, WAGs are important as an explicit opportunity for our white colleagues who want to stand in solidarity with and support our BIPOC colleagues as we collectively work to become a more equitable, inclusive, and antiracist organization. WAGs may be beneficial to those who answer “yes” to any of the following:
- UW Medicine is committed to being an antiracist institution – how do you fit in?
- Are you a UW Medicine community member who wishes to learn more about antiracism and deepen your engagement in antiracist work within our community, or in your home environment?
- Would you like support and structure in learning and implementing antiracist action?
- Do you want to be a part of a growing UW Medicine community working towards and calling for change?
We have multiple opportunities available
If you have questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Office of Healthcare Equity has the affinity groups for colleagues convening to provide supportive and protected spaces for members of different groups to connect and support each other.
- Asian and
- Pacific Islander, and
- LGBTQIA2s+ colleagues
If you are looking to join a different affinity group that you identify with, please visit our affinity groups webpage, here.
