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.
Who Should Participate?
This program was designed for SOM faculty and staff. Individuals within the SOM should take advantage of this program as a means to learn about DEI topics and to build inclusion into your department/unit and across the institution. If you are member of SOM and not a faculty or staff and would like to participate in this opportunity, please contact Ishiah McKeithan.
Visit the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion website for more information about this opportunity.
