The Mount Sinai Health System now has a plan for effectuating anti-racist change. Identifying changes is one thing, the journey there is another. Two questions that may help us in this process are continuously assessing 1) Are we ready for change? and 2) How do we create change? In this Chats for Change we will dive into the power of peer influence and the role it plays in anti-racist change. This discussion will help us think about how institutional culture, individualism, and racism interact with this change process and impact our feelings about it. We will wonder about the conditions necessary for peer influence, who has access to this strategy, and the effect of hierarchical structures on feasibility and outcomes. We invite all members of the Mount Sinai community to join for this discussion as we consider what is (and is not) possible with a little help from our friends!
