In this webinar, Harmony Johnson reflects on the In Plain Sight Report: Addressing Indigenous-specific Racism and Discrimination in B.C. Health Care nearly two years since its release. She explores the key meta-findings from the report and considers the implications for human beings and leaders working in the health sector. Although the In Plain Sight Report focuses on the B.C. health care system, the lessons shared are relevant and applicable for all leaders working in Canada.
