WIN rejects hatred, racism, violence, and bigotry of any kind. WIN cannot honor its mission or vision without committing to act against racism and without supporting those who actively seek to end it. To advance health and nursing, equity must be the central priority. Without widespread structural change to dismantle institutional racism and discrimination of any kind, equity cannot be realized.
To support the eradication of racism and discrimination, WIN pledges to structure opportunities to advance health equity in the West by 1) Promoting health equity through WIN programming, 2) Developing nurses from diverse populations, and 3) Increasing the number of monetary awards focusing on health disparities in the West.
