2022 Diversity Panel - Respect

From the 2022 Joint Annual Meeting (recorded 6/27/2022)
Presented by Justin Hanenberg, MS, MLS(ASCP)cm, Emilia Marrero, MEd, M(ASCP), Laura Link, MS, MLS (ASCP)CM, and Ogechi Ohaeto, MT

The Diversity Panel is back with a focus on the second pillar of PRISM(Pride-Respect-Inclusion-Support-Momentum): Respect. The forum is evolving from a “safe space” to a “brave space” to invite discussion and discourse on topics about creating an inclusive mindset in the laboratory (and beyond). Join ASCLS Diversity Advocacy Council Leaders as we look at the various dimensions of what makes “respect” when it comes to power dynamics, communication, and advancing patient care.

At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to:

  • Define the dimensions of respect and provide examples applicable to their role as laboratory professionals.
  • Explain and compare the concepts of safe space and brave space when engaging in respectful dialogue.
  • Discuss applications of respectful communication when engaging with diverse patients, colleagues and communities.
