Leadership and diversity: a call for new directions in reproductive health education and practice
The answer to providing the best possible patient care to a diverse patient population is grounded in understanding, adaptation and creativity. We need to understand and apply the principles of diversity and cultural competence - including our own cultural biases - while creatively adapting to the reality of a changing professional environment. This should continue to be our top priority. The next step in accepting the "normality" of diversity is to tear down the physical and social barriers that separate racial groups and to become more accepting of those who are of a different religious affiliation or sexual orientation. It is only then, when we come to the table with an unbiased eye, that we can finally embrace the beauty of our differences. The benefits of a well-acculturated profession and higher quality care for all of our patients are worth the investment.
