Join us in conversation with Dr. Lauren Powell, TIME’S UP Vice President and Head of Healthcare Industry, on how COVID-19 has unearthed underlying issues with racism, gender inequality, and health inequities in healthcare. Where do we go from here? How can we boost a movement to foster equity for those who provide and receive healthcare?
