  4. Diversity Committee Update

    The Executive Team is selecting members to serve on the Diversity Committee.  We will soon be sharing the selected names  but without question we have an incredible list of eligible applicants. I hope all of them will serve on this committee at some time as we rotate members. I have also just been elected to the SMPH Diversity and Equity Committee and so will continue to advocate for our work at the medical school level and hope to see even greater cross-fertilization of ideas and projects across the school.

  5. Soaring for Change - Update On the 2020 Initiative

    Over 50 members from across the department joined us for a brainstorming session on December 11, 2014. We concluded by folding paper cranes as a personal and collective act toward a more intentional commitment to diversity, inclusion and health equity. Please see them all mounted on the 2nd floor of Alumni Hall welcoming people into the residency hallway.

    We are very excited to report that with the support of the Executive Team we will be embarking upon Phase 2 that we are calling the “Action Phase” built around these concepts:

    Training; Recruiting; Unlearning and learning; Sustaining and retaining; and Tracking (TRUST).
