The Penn State Health 22-Day Inclusion Challenge – June 30: The Road to Upstanding: We Are…Inclusion  

June 30

The Penn State Health 22-Day Inclusion Challenge
WEEK 5 – Theme: The Road to Upstanding  

June 30: The Road to Upstanding: We Are…Inclusion  

As we close out the month, we encourage you to use what you have learned to think about what role you can fulfill in advancing our organization’s commitment to inclusion, our mission of providing culturally responsive care to our increasing diverse patients, as well as what you might be able to do to support equity and social justice more broadly. Penn State Health has an Inclusion Academy that provides expert-led sessions on tips for providing quality care for specific diverse populations. And don’t forget the Upstander Cafes, which are planned for the first Friday of each month over the next year. These provide an opportunity to connect with colleagues and to hone your own upstanding skills. And watch for Inclusion Week, January 17-21, 2022, where we will continue some of the discussions inspired by this Inclusion Challenge.   

Activity: For a list of tips on how to not be a bystander, check out this Bystander Resources page.  

Please note: Some links may not be accessible on clinical workstations. Employees can view them on a nonclinical workstation or their personal device. 

Final Thought: 

Thank you for participating in this monthlong opportunity to learn more about how to be audacious in advancing inclusion. Our hope is that you acquired more knowledge to advance inclusion and respect at work, in your community, and at home.  We encourage you to take this opportunity to reflect on what you learned this month, including how you would respond to these questions: 

  • What surprised you the most about the information discussed during these conversations? 
  • What is one thing you learned during the month that will stick with you?   
  • How might you incorporate what you learned during the month into your own life? 

We encourage you to email the health system diversity office at to share your responses. We also look forward to your feedback about this Inclusion Challenge.
