Chats for Change is an important part of Mount Sinai's dedication to addressing diversity, racism and bias. It is a series of dialogues "built on the notion that in order to respond to racism and be anti-racist we must engage in dialogue, learning, and action." For several upcoming Fall/Winter 2023-24 sessions, Chats for Change is discussing the book The Sum of Us: What Racism Costs Everyone and How We Can Prosper Together by Heather McGee. Several of our library staff have attended previous Chats for Change sessions, and we are committed to supporting learning in these series. When we saw that this book was going to be featured, we acquired an e-copy for the wider Mount Sinai community to read and learn from.
