"Our Lives Matter"
an anonymous diversity, equity & Inclusion unlearning experience
The writing is on the wall.
About the program
The "Our Lives Matter" DEI unLearning program is program offered to community-focused organizations. The program is designed to provide professionals a safe space to address internal biases through anonymous participation. As a result, each business that enrolls into the OLM DEI unLearning program must assign a minimum of 5 participants. The DEI insights presented and discussed through this program represent the experiences of rare disease people of color with a variety of Perspectives, Insights and Experiences (P.I.E.) from around the world.
GOALS & Expectations:
Participants obtain a deeper understanding of the contributing factors that have resulted in the P.I.E. to the global medically complex community of color.
Participants obtain community-based insights necessary to obtaining the foundation required to approach clinical trial design in an equitably inclusive manner.
Participants obtain real world insights derived from a diverse group of internationally-based people that have historically been disenfranchised by the dominant status quo.
Participants are anonymized and provided with the opportunity to ask potentially biased questions in a safe, professional environment without the worry of experiencing unintended professional consequences.
Participating organizations that qualify (as determined by the assigned OLM leadership team) are automatically represented in the "We CARE About Rare Lives" Directory, a directory that published on Rare Disease Day - February 28, 2021. The directory is a beacon of trust that an educated diverse group of community-based professionals have worked with your organization to meaningfully address internal biases and obtain real world DEI understandings that allow for the implementation of truly equitably inclusive programs, initiatives and an overall corporate culture.
