Studies show that perinatal care providers are committed to, and place a high value on, providing high-quality and equitable care to Black birthing women. Unfortunately, a large body of research shows a major gap between perinatal care providers' value on equitable care and Black birthing women's experiences and outcomes. This course addresses that gap. In addition to the core course, we provide supportive resources for organizational leaders, facilitators/trainers, and other change agents.

- Why we behave in biased ways that are not consistent with our true values,
- Where biases come from,
