Unpacking Racism in the Health System
Racism is often considered as an interaction between two people - one person holding prejudice against another because of their race. However, racism is far more complex and insidious than just interpersonal encounters.
This event will focus on how racism is embedded into Aotearoa's health and disability system and how the presence of systemic racism leads to poorer health outcomes, in particular for our indigenous population.
Through a Q&A style wānanga/discussion, our expert speakers will unpack the presence of racism and how it is built into the colonial health system of Aotearoa, and how this, in turn, leads directly to Māori experiencing a greater burden of disease and poorer quality of care. The kōrero will also consider how people can educate themselves or contribute towards an actively anti-racist system.

The Social Change Collective is planning to hold its first Youth Governance Workshop in Auckland in late November.
This will be a half day workshop, tailored for younger people (20 - 35), aimed to help in understanding how boards work, how to get on a board and where you can best upskill to become an effective board member.
We will have experienced board members providing advice and guidance for our participants.
