Allina Health Library has compiled a collection of resources on diversity, equity and inclusion. While the resources are geared towards healthcare and medicine, there are resources throughout that all employees can explore. The topics listed contain links to journal articles, books in the library collection, links to government agencies and other online resources. This is not an exhausted list of resources or of disenfranchised peoples, this guide is meant to keep growing and changing.
This guide also follows the theory of intersectionality and many of our resources reflect this ideal.
Intersectionality operates under the premise that people possess multiple, layered identities, including race, gender, class, sexual orientation, ethnicity, and ability, among others. Intersectionality refers to the ways in which these identities intersect to affect individuals’ realities and lived experiences, thereby shaping their perspectives, worldview, and relationships with others.
