"Our Lives Matter"
an anonymous diversity, equity & Inclusion unlearning experience
The writing is on the wall.
About the program
The OLM DEI unLearning program is offered exclusively to community-focused companies and organizations. The program is designed to provide business 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 from their team. The DEI insights presented and discussed during this program represent the experiences of rare disease people of color from a variety of Perspectives, Insights and Experiences (P.I.E.).
GOALS & Expectations:
Participants obtain a deeper understanding of the contributing factors that have resulted in the P.I.E. of the global medically complex communities 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 community-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 DEI leadership team) are represented in the "We CARE About Rare Lives" Directory, a directory launched 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.
