Global Diversity Awareness – Kwanzaa Celebration

December 27, 2021

Join the Penn State Health Office for Diversity Equity and Inclusion in a celebration of Kwanzaa!

Kwanzaa is an annual celebration of African-American culture that is held from December 26 to January 1, culminating in a communal feast called Karamu, usually held on the 6th day. It celebrates African heritage, unity, self-determination, collective work and responsibility, cooperative economics, purpose, creativity, and faith. (Wikipedia).

This event is an opportunity to raise awareness about this celebration and African American culture, as well as build an inclusive culture for our Black and African American patients and employees.

How to Participate:

Stop by the cafeterias of your community hospital, or the common areas of your practice site, between Noon and 1:30 p.m. and between 5 and 6:30 p.m. (or while supplies last) to pick up treats and coloring pages and learn more about this celebration. Supplies are limited, so please be sure to stop down early, and don’t forget to “Check In” by scanning the QR code on the table.

Sign up for the monthly Diversity newsletter here to stay updated about this and other events hosted by the Penn State Health Office for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.

We hope to see you there!
