Following are tools and resources for healthcare professionals working to learn more or make change related to diversity, equity, inclusion and antiracism (DEIAR).
Racial Equity Tools
Racial Equity Tools offers 600+ resources (tools, research tips, curricula and ideas) to support individuals and groups working to achieve racial equity by increasing their understanding and helping those working for racial justice at every level – in systems, organizations, communities, and the culture at large.
Structural competency is the capacity for health professionals to recognize and respond to health and illness as the downstream effects of broad social, political, and economic structures. The idea is based on the recognition that oft-invisible structural level determinates, biases, inequities, and blind spots shape definitions of health and illness long before doctors or patients enter examination rooms. The site StructuralCompetency.org offers definitions, resources, and more.
AAMC IDEAS webinar series
IDEAS is a monthly webinar series hosted by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) that brings in experts from across academic medicine to help attendees foster inclusive environments; create equitable advancement, promotion, and tenure policies; and promote anti-racist policies, education, and institutional practices.

5B Toolkit from American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN)
AACN created this teaching resource for nursing students which includes themes such as allyship, health equity, and moral courage.
These themes are intended to help new nurses more fully understand their role as caregiver as well as the settings and systems in which they will practice. Each theme is introduced and followed by a Reflection exercise that can be used to engage students in a deeper conversation about role expectations and the practice of nursing. Related resources and recommended readings also are included to spark further study of the identified theme.
