Take Steps Toward Promoting Belonging
“We all belong in the circle of human concern” - Othering & Belonging Institute
In this issue of I.M. Thriving, to promote belonging, we are highlighting resources that can help facilitate the bridging of divides and create healing and thriving environments.
The alarm sounded by the Surgeon General’s Advisory on Health Worker Burnout and Resignation emphasizes that health worker burnout is at crisis levels and must be a top national priority: “The nation’s health depends on the well-being of our workforce.” Taking intentional action from where we are to collaborate, include all voices, and strengthen our community is crucial as we navigate through our journey toward transforming the culture of medicine. This all begins with a simple act: having and giving spaces to belong.
Creating a culture of belonging requires a multi-pronged and multi-stakeholder approach. We hope that the resources help you in your many community roles.
Check out the links below for tools and resources that you can use for yourself and your organization and to teach others:
- Create and sustain positive work and learning environments and culture in medicine.
- Support mental health and reduce stigma.
- Institutionalize well-being as a long-term value.
