It was once a great struggle for a woman to even be considered for a medical education in the United States—or anywhere, for that matter. Today, however, women are not only some of the most accomplished professionals in the medical field, they are figuring out ways to use their education to heal, empower, and educate those who have been disenfranchised. Join the YWCA for a conversation between Dr. Mysheika Williams Roberts, Columbus’ first African-American health commissioner, and Dr. Susan Koletar, director of the Division of Infectious Diseases Professor of Internal Medicine at The Ohio State Wexner Medical Center and pioneering AIDS researcher. These two women are using their medical education to improve the health and well-being of some of the most vulnerable individuals in our communities.

“I believe we can change the world if we start listening to one another again. Simple, honest, human conversation.” Margaret J. Wheatley

Do you have a safe space to talk about how racism and sexism impact you and the people you care about?

As a nation, we’ve experienced horrific events within the last year that have forced us to acknowledge that sexism and racism are very much ingrained in our society. From white nationalists marching in Charlottesville, VA to Hollywood’s sexual abuse victims finding their voice, men and women across the country are starting to engage in conversations about injustices faced by many women and people of color in our country.

Let’s Talk About It is a guided conversation series that invites men and women in Central Ohio to explore current events in news and popular culture from a social justice lens. We’ll discuss practical approaches to advocacy, ally ship and solidarity that you can begin to use in your everyday life.
