As an Occupational Therapist your job takes you to a range of different settings and requires you to work within a group of wider support staff.
We have gathered a selection of resources and additional reading that can help you become more aware of the issues of racism in occupational therapy, and support you if you are an OT who has experienced racism.
Some of the resources created for the Dare to CARE project feature accounts of racism experienced by individuals. These scenarios are anonymised, but have been created using real stories taken from a range of sources.
"We need a greater understanding of the complexities of racism, such as micro-aggressions, and to highlight how to empower people to become vocal and not tolerate racism in any form."
