Unaddressed trauma deteriorates health.
Racism is trauma.
KINSHIFT thoughtfully facilitates hard discussions, helping healthcare and public health organizations make sustained shifts that will lead to long-term transformation.
There are often limited resources devoted to addressing the impact of trauma, racism, and bias on organizational operations. KINSHIFT supports institutional and system transformation through evidence-based strategies and interventions.
What we measure matters. KINSHIFT demonstrates impact using customized research and evaluation tools.
It’s not enough to prevent trauma from happening. We are also morally obligated to mend the wounds caused by racism and other spheres of oppression. KINSHIFT helps create healing environments for clients and colleagues.
