Addressing Racism: A Road Map for Action
The Mount Sinai Health System Task Force to Address Racism
“We Stand in Solidarity Against Racism. And We are Committed to Equity in Health Care”
At the Mount Sinai Health System, we are passionately committed to addressing racism and its effects on our faculty, staff, students, trainees, patients, visitors, and the communities we serve. To this end, we have launched The Mount Sinai Health System Task Force to Address Racism, led by Gary C. Butts, MD, Executive Vice President and Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer, Mount Sinai Health System, and Dean, Diversity Programs, Policy, and Community Affairs, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.
The Task Force has been active with its work since July 2020, engaging stakeholders and other experts in a Collective Impact process charged with developing a road map to address racism across the Health System.
Our goal is for Mount Sinai to become an anti-racist health care and learning institution that intentionally addresses structural racism. The Task Force’s work will help create an inclusive and equitable work and learning environment where all feel they belong. A key component to our success is the involvement of our entire community.
