Examining Injustice and Imagining Otherwise in Healthcare Work/Labor

Event Description
Join us for the sociology department's spring event. The COVID-19 pandemic and the racial justice uprisings of 2020 have underscored persistent inequalities in healthcare work and among the practitioners that labor in the healthcare industries. From the underrepresentation of Black doctors and surgeons, to the dominance of women of color laboring in precarious -- and often dangerous -- working conditions as low-pay health care aides or EMTs, wider inequalities in American society are mirrored in the healthcare workforce. These inequalities have profound effects on the health of patients, especially for patients of color, queer and trans or non-binary patients, and patients with disabilities. The colloquium “Examining Injustice and Imagining/Organizing Otherwise for Healthcare Labor” will bring together scholars, activists, and workers from across the healthcare workforce to consider how structural racism, gendered inequity and violence, labor rights, and disability shape the work of those who provide care in a paid setting. During the colloquium we will reimagine what a just healthcare workforce could look like in the United States.
