Via the Carolina Plott Hound and the North State Journal, we learn of a group called Do No Harm that acts as a whistleblower against woke health care entities that have forced “racial justice” training and/or policies upon their employees.
One of these is the Cone Health System. The article reports that Cone contracts with the Racial Equity Institute, based in Greensboro, that is operated by Deena Hayes, the black chairwoman of the Guilford County school board. She has a long history of engaging in race-baiting, identity politics on the school board in a manner that has undermined the ability of teachers to maintain order and discipline in the classroom.
The Cone system has long had a progressive/socialist bent. But in response to the Covid pandemic and the George Floyd riots, its management culture went absolutely berserk.
The North State Journal also cites UNC Chapel Hill (of course), NC State University, Pitts County Public Health, and the North Carolina Principal Fellows Program as additional entities engaging in this type of training. It explains that Duke University has a “racial justice” task force.
What did the article say specifically about the Cone Health System?
DNH also points to Cone Health’s network of hospitals and medical centers in the Greensboro area as having “gone woke” based on information provided by a whistleblower. Cone Health has apparently instituted training using REI’s Groundwater approach, book readings such as Ibram Kendi’s “How to be an antiracist,” and requiring DEI courses be taken.
“The 2021 Cone Health DEI Report encourages employees and organizational leaders to participate in “hardwiring DEI into everything we do” during 2022 by applying “an equity lens” to achieve the organization’s vision. This encourages staff to be political activists, not healthcare professionals,” according to DNH.
Stay away from the hospital systems unless you have no choice.
