    Episode 48: Patricia Ramirez Pinckney

    Episode 48: Patricia Ramirez Pinckney

    What is the increasing importance of rebuilding a new way of doing business and relating to each other? Can one group of people gain benefits without taking from another group?

    In this series on healthcare and social disparities, Dr. Jill Wener, a board-certified Internal Medicine specialist, meditation expert, and tapping practitioner, interviews experts in multiple fields relating to social justice and anti-racism. In this episode, Jill interviews Patricia Ramirez Pinckney, founder of The U.S. Latino Cultural Competence Institute. They discuss how Latinos are no longer a niche market and are now seen as ambicultural, unifiers, and mainstream in the US. Patricia explains what we’re missing about cultural diversity in our own country. She highlights the importance of people feeling like themselves and being understood at work, in order to demonstrate unity and inclusiveness by example (and not just speaking about platitudes).

    Patricia is also a co-founder of RIMA Strategy and Marketing, which provides C-level  “big company” strategy to medium and growth-stage ventures. As a multicultural Latina fluent in English and Spanish, Patricia crosses cultural boundaries to effectively collaborate with stakeholders of diverse backgrounds and mindsets. This ability, together with a solid quantitative base developed from years of analyzing data, serve as the foundation for successful acculturated strategies to reach multiple audiences in today’s multicultural markets.

She teaches Negotiation and Dispute Resolution at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania where she serves on the faculty of the Legal Studies and Business Ethics Department and is a seven-time recipient of awards for excellence in teaching.

Pspenser ,

Great guests and insightful interviews on a timely and critical topic

A fascinating mix of activists, medical professionals and more with in-depth discussions on the impact of systemic disparities. This podcast if both very approachable for those just starting to learn more about the anti-racist movement but deep enough for those looking for innovative, creative ideas for putting ideas into action in a variety of disciplines. Highly recommended.

Chris Dancy

That was a weird interview, he’s not an anti racist and he straight up said it. He sounds like he has a wicked complex, he’s confused and needs serious enlightenment. You’re either racist or you’re anti. He claims he’s not and then he goes on to say there’s no MLK, Malcom, Etc of our day, does he realize that’s the power of the movement we’re right in the middle of right now?!? He’s too privileged and can’t see past it. Weak podcast compared to the others. Love your podcast 🤍
