Diversity & Multiculturalism, Webinar, Women's Health

This event describes the pervasive threat of misogynoir for health equity for Black women. Dr. Vanessa Volpe discusses examples of how misogynoir manifests in health psychology contexts, the ways in which our positionalities shape our perceptions of Black women, and concrete actions to disrupt misogynoir for health equity at multiple levels of the social-ecological system.
