Massachusetts General Hospital staff had the opportunity to take part in three virtual celebrations to honor of Martin Luther King Jr. and illuminate his goals of racial equity and justice. Leaders—including Carla Carten, executive director of the Mass General Brigham Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, Peter L. Slavin, MD, Mass General president, and Anne Klibanski, MD, president and CEO of Mass General Brigham—reflected on King’s emphasis on equity in health care as a racial justice issue. They affirmed the Mass General Brigham system’s commitment to advance the progress on the journey to becoming an anti-racist organization. Featured speakers at each event elaborated on this theme.
