Following the tragic killing of George Floyd in May 2020, nurse leaders had the opportunity to take advantage of this national moment of collective reflection by establishing or renewing individual and organizational commitments to racial equity. Nursing at the University of California Davis Health used this unique window of sustained attention to develop a training approach that integrated the concept of cultural humility with antiracism and equipped nurse leaders to confront how the nation's dysfunctional history of race relations continues to undermine achievement of the goal of health equity. This discussion highlights key pivotal leadership decisions that facilitated cocreation of strategies to advance equity in nursing practice and organizational change.
