The DEI Certificate Program is a new initiative from the SOM Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in support of the 2019 SOM Strategic Plan to foster an inclusive workplace environment. The program’s curriculum offers workshops and training designed to broaden awareness about Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion topics among the SOM faculty/staff and deepen engagement with and between individuals in the SOM at all levels – from patients to leadership. The workshops offered accepted as part of the certificate program address a broad array of DEI topics, including those related to race and ethnicity, gender and sexual orientation, culture and religion, socioeconomic status, and more.
To earn the SOM DEI Certificate, program participants must complete six approved DEI offerings (two required and four elective workshops). Workshops will be offered on a regular basis and we anticipate that it will take at least 3 semesters to complete the certificate requirements.
