This keynote is designed to connect the dots on some commonly overlooked elements of advancing equity. Using the mantra, “Deconstructing Equity,” Dr. Tyler will explore how a history of misinterpreting the words diversity, inclusivity, equality and equity has had an impact on how we have advanced the work.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand the history and interplay between diversity, inclusion, and equity in our quest to advance health equity.
  2. Learn to leverage the power of stories to influence system changes.
  3. Identify the Five Bases of Social Power and their impact on public health.
