Racial Justice & Equity Statement

The Training Fund is fighting to dismantle & eradicate racism and anti-blackness in ourselves and our broader healthcare community. Health equity, access to education, and economic mobility must be recognized and treated as human rights. Our team intentionally empowers & supports those who are marginalized because of their intersectional identities, which includes race, age, class, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, education, ability, culture, ethnicity and language. In all of our organizational practices and initiatives we strive to eliminate institutional bias while cultivating equity and inclusion. We take bold actions and incite systemic change through equity-based programming and advocacy. We are vigilant and resolute in our efforts.
