Beginning Again:  Part Two of Fostering a Culture of Occupational Justice:

Sally Wasmuth PhD, OTR; Victoria G. Wilburn DHSc, OTR

This session is part two of a series entitled “Begin Here: Fostering a Culture of Occupational Justice.” Part one consisted of an overview of the history of racism within the profession of occupational therapy, an introduction to the importance of individual self-exploration and reflection to address implicit bias and internalized white dominance. The session culminated with break-out rooms: in a white identifying break-out room, participants watched “Black Voices in Occupational Therapy” – a brief film depicting experiences of Black occupational therapy students and practitioners within a white-dominant field. A BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) breakout room engaged in a supportive, reflective group discussion about their experiences in healthcare and academia. While part two stands alone, and can be attended regardless of whether one participated in part one, it is intended to be a continuation of part one, offering an ongoing guide to self-exploratory activities to facilitate a culture of change within the field of occupational therapy. This session is rooted in the belief that to become a more diverse field, we must first cultivate a sense of belonging within our personal and professional spaces. Moreover, this session emphasizes that the work of anti-racism is largely a personal journey in which individuals must seek out and commit to exploring, examining, and addressing implicit bias resulting from a longstanding culture of racism in the United States. The session will offer real-time opportunities to engage in anti-racist work, and a set of practices for ongoing endeavors in this area, with the long-term goal of evolving the field of occupational therapy toward a sense of belonging for previously marginalized groups, diversification of the field, and ultimately, an enhanced ability of our profession to support, promote, and advocate for occupational justice.
