Violet education is here to upskill clinician cultural competence with an average 4.5-star satisfaction rating from real-life providers.
Our goal is to help care delivery teams better support diverse communities. And finally there's a solution.
Violet is the first health equity platform and it provides accredited cultural competence continuing education on a single app, including learning modules, actionable guides, case vignettes, and dynamic media, like audio diaries, all created by clinicians, community leaders, and experts. Through dynamic and nuanced education, we’re helping providers and all health care staff expand their cultural competence skills when working with BIPOC, LGBQ, and TGNC patients.
Our in-depth curriculum is designed to foster self-reflection and discussion through health equity clinical education. However, knowing the reality of the overburdened health care system, we created these courses with a clinician’s workload in mind. Most of our courses can be completed in 15 minutes or less, allowing providers to learn at their own pace.
Thousands of providers across the health care industry have used Violet education, improved benchmarks, and earned CE/CME credits. And it makes a difference. With Violet, Brightline improved inclusive care delivery by 67%.
Here are a few examples of Violet’s courses:
- Social determinants of health. This course introduces the social and economic factors that impact health and well-being. For many patients, this includes a wide range of non-medical factors that influence their health and health care experiences. These factors are known as social determinants of health and represent a key area of opportunity for improving health equity. Read more about social determinants of health here.
- BIPOC mental health: Understanding racially-based health inequities. This course is part of a collection about BIPOC communities and the mental health inequities that affect them. Rather than solely focusing on health disparities, this course provides an overview of how to integrate a race-conscious approach to mental health care, as well as best practices for helping patients identify protective factors.

- Culturally responsive mental health intake. Conducting a culturally responsive intake requires a clinician to intentionally make time and space to discuss social identity, systems of power, to demonstrate cultural humility, and to show a willingness to learn about the cultural backgrounds and values of the clients served. This course is designed to help therapists successfully develop and formulate your own culturally responsive intake session.
- Introspection. Introspection is a skill that allows clinicians to better understand their own experiences so they can bring empathy to their patient interactions.This course covers the multiple ways introspection can be incorporated into everyday clinical practice.
- Creating an affirmative space. (Case vignette). Violet’s case vignettes are positive models of realistic patient-provider interactions.In this story, a 13-year-old trans teen is brought in to see a therapist by her mother. Although the mother misgenders her daughter, the therapist talks one-on-one with the teen and builds the foundation for an affirmative space.

- Implicit bias. (Audio). In order to understand how implicit bias affects provider-patient interactions and patient outcomes, these eight short audio diaries detail different patient experiences of facing bias in a clinical setting. After listening (or reading) the patient stories, users are encouraged to participate in the community discussion board. Read more about overcoming unconscious bias here.
