Unconscious Bias Training for MSTP Seminar
by Matt Wleklinski (G3)
Recently, during our weekly MSTP seminar, we had the honor of having Dr. Arie L. Nettles host a special training session on unconscious bias. Dr. Nettles is an associate professor of Clinical Pediatrics and psychologist for school-age children to young adults with developmental disabilities, autism, and clef- craniofacial in the Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC). Founder and director of VUMC’s Office of Inclusion and Health Equity (OIHE) since 2011, Dr. Nettles has expanded the program from its origins at Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital to encompass the entirety of the VUMC enterprise on cultural awareness, unconscious bias, and Respect@Work: Sexual Harassment education and training. We want to thank Dr. Nettles for her time and for hosting a very insightful and educational training session.
