2.1. The pandemic and workplace inequity Sick Individuals / Sick Populations

    • Science

Welcome back for another episode of Sick Individuals/ Sick Populations. In this episode, we were fortunate to be joined by Dr. Adia Harvey Wingfield, the Mary Tileston Hemenway Professor of Arts & Sciences and Vice Dean for Faculty Development and Diversity in Arts & Sciences at Washington University in St. Louis. Her research examines how and why racial and gender inequality persists in professional occupations. Her most recent book, Flatlining: Race, Work, and Health Care in the New Economy, won the 2019 C. Wright Mills Award. In our wide ranging conversation, we discussed the impact of the pandemic on health workers, particularly Black American providers who were already marginalized and bearing a disproportionate burden prior to the pandemic. Dr. Harvey Wingfield also shed light on what companies and organizations should be doing to support equity beyond hashtags and statements.
